ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: With squad bragging potential match-champs, West Indies equipped for winning the trophy

It isn't that implausible that it is the West Indies that will be on the platform tolerating the prize at last. Jason Holder and his men have what it takes. Toss in a little karma and they could well win the World Cup for the third time. 

Despite the fact that the recently chosen organization introduced another determination board and changed the qualification rules, there were not many astonishments in the West Indies squad picked to challenge the 2019 ICC World Cup competition in England. The selectors, driven by previous West Indies ODI player Robert Haynes, predominantly stuck by the officeholders, and discussion of the arrival of those routinely observed on the T20 circuit, for example, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, came to nothing. 



The most easily proven wrong determination will likely be that of Fabian Allen. His consideration could be believed to be something of an astonishment. He has done little in four ODIs and his List A numbers are not extraordinary either. 

All things considered, Allen is viewed as a player of some guarantee. He is a fantastic defender, bowls not too bad left-arm universal turn and has a couple of good First Class and T20 scores to his name. 

Questions may likewise be raised about the determinations of Ashley Nurse and Carlos Brathwaite, despite the fact that both participated in the ongoing ODIs against England in the Caribbean. Narine's nonappearance because of finger damage, which he reports makes ten overs excessively exhausting, and a hesitance to swing to chunky all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall, pretty much made ready for Nurse's maintenance. The Barbadian off-spinner has not actually set the world land as of late, yet the selectors did not have a ton of reasonable turn bowling alternatives. 

Brathwaite did not include in huge numbers of the theoretical groups picked by fans before the naming of the official 15. However the tall all-rounder may have been the West Indies' steadiest quick bowler amid the England arrangement. Forgetting him would have been troublesome. 

Late outcomes have made West Indies cricket fans cheerful of their group's World Cup prospects. Having as of late drawn their five-coordinate arrangement (One was rained out) against England – the main positioned group in the amusement – the predominant view is that the West Indies have as great a possibility of winning the trophy as any of the top groups. 

This isn't simply originating from excessively hopeful individuals from the Caribbean cricket network. Previous England chief Michael Vaughan feels a similar way: "I have an inclination this West Indies side will stun a couple of individuals at the World Cup," Vaughan commented on Radio in the wake of seeing the West Indies shake off 389 in the fourth ODI against England. This they did in a losing cause, as England had posted 418, yet it was a relentless exertion in any case. 

Highlighting any semblance of Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Andre Russell and Shimron Hetmyer, the West Indies batting have the sort of flame control that isn't to be laughed at. Each of the four are potential match-champs with "genuine power," as indicated by Vaughan. They could well motivation a couple of cerebral pains. 

Having not played in some time, Lewis' structure is to be seen. His capacities are outstanding, in any case, and he could well shake off a couple of huge scores. Hetmyer is one of the all the more energizing youthful gifts in the diversion. A poor begin for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL has seen him lose his spot in the group. Be that as it may, he is a known amount, and with four romping ODI hundreds of years effectively added to his repertoire from 25 excursions, he could be one of the players of the competition if structure returns to him. 

Gayle and Russell have been relentless as of late. The Universe Boss, as he calls himself, has as of late come back to his best. All ought to be careful. Runs have been sprinkling from his bat in the IPL, and against England in the Caribbean before that. He will turn up in England sure of making a genuine imprint on the competition. 

Russell will need to make his imprint also. The amazing right-hander spends significant time in acts of futility, in conveying his group to triumph from positions they have no correct returning from. Regardless of the required run-rate or the quantity of runs required, it is never over with Russell at the wrinkle. No big surprise then that he is being called Superman. 

The remainder of the West Indies batting, while not as flammable, is comprised of some very convenient players. Expectation, Bravo and Holder, probably won't have the power nor the methodology of the previously mentioned ball blenders, however they are on the whole fit for making telling commitments. 

Pace, the selectors accept, will assume a major job amid the mid year. There won't almost certainly be much swing, boss selector Haynes contended, thus high pace could well be a powerful weapon. To that end they included Shannon Gabriel, who hasn't played an ODI in some time, Oshane Thomas, a beefy Jamaican fit for exasperating pace, and left-armer Sheldon Cottrell. 

The white kookaburra has not completed a great deal as of late and scores in England have thus been fairly immense. The West Indies pacers could cause some inconvenience. In any case, they once in a while need consistent quality and is probably not going to be the wellspring of such much concern. On the off chance that the West Indies are to do well the batting should make up for any weaknesses the bowling uncovers. 

The West Indies are ninth in the ICC rankings and endured the insult of playing qualifying matches so as to participate in the competition. They will hence not be one of the top choices when threats start on 30 May. 

It has, without a doubt, been quite a while since the West Indies were viewed as a possible World Cup winning unit, maybe not since the 1990s. This time, be that as it may, they could well be the unexpected group of the competition. To do well they need what they have frequently needed – consistency. "The West Indies have coordinate victors," said Brian Lara a couple of months prior, "yet that is insufficient to play in English conditions and win the World Cup. We need a group that is predictable." 

The West Indies will touch base in England as a unit with sizeable qualities, yet one with glaring shortcomings also. One of the more liked groups, England, India, or Australia maybe, will be required to hold the ICC World Cup Trophy high up toward the finish of the 51st match of the competition. Be that as it may, it isn't that fantastical that it is the West Indies that will be on the platform tolerating the prize at last. Jason Holder and his men have the right stuff. Toss in a little karma and they could well win the World Cup for the third time.
