World T20 West Indies Team
In 2012, the West Indies won the World Cup against England in Kolkata, the first two years to win the ICC T20 World Cup. With two ICC T20 World Cup victories in the last three years, the West Indies have a chance of making more history. Rampaul, who last appeared for the Argentine national team in 2015, returns as a member. It is the first time Chase has been called into the team for a T20I match. The CWI’s lead selector said, “The squad has depth and strength in all areas. The team has tremendous T20 experience and World Cup-winning experience, which will serve the team well.
“Our squad consists of world-beating players, which when combined will create a formidable team. My expectations are high for the team, and I think the team has a high chance of defending the championship with the ‘rub of the green.’” The team will gain another option in the death overs as Rampaul is a highly experienced bowler who performed well in the last CG Insurance Super50 Cup and the current Hero CPL.
He will significantly boost the team’s options during the power-play and middle phase. It has been evident that Chase can play well in the T20s in 2020 and now in 2021. He can weave the innings together while still scoring at a fast pace with a low dot-ball percentage. He can be excellent backing for the explosive players.”
Ravi Rampaul returns, Gayle, Russell headline West Indies’ squad for the T20 World Cup.
West Indies will compete in the Twenty20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and Oman in October-November. Rampaul, a former captain of the side, will return to the team for the first time in six years.
Rampaul, a member of the 2012 World Cup-winning squad, last played T20 against Sri Lanka in 2015 and returns to bolster a lineup that will aim for an unprecedented third title.
He will provide another option for the death overs, thanks to Rampaul’s seasoned bowling. It will benefit the team’s wicket-taking during the power play and middle phase,” said Cricket West Indies selection manager Roger Harper.
Roston Chase has been selected for the T20I squad for the first time.
“Roston Chase has demonstrated that he is a capable T20 player. He had an outstanding season in 2020 and has been even better so far in 2021.

Today, the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel announced the West Indies squad for the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s T20 World Cup, 2021. For the marquee event in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from October 17 to November 14, 2021, the selection committee named fifteen (15) players and four (4) traveling reserves.
Two years later, in Kolkata, the West Indies won the World Cup against England, becoming the first team to win the ICC T20 World Cup in 2012. Having won two of the last three ICC T20 World Cups, the West Indies now have the opportunity to make further history.
In 2016, experienced bowler Ravi Rampaul was recalled for the first time since being part of the 2012 World Cup squad. It is the first time Chase has been called into the team for a T20I match.
As a T20 player, Roger Chase has proven to be very capable. The CPL in 2020 saw him perform well, and the 2021 edition has seen him excel thus far. In addition to scoring at an accelerated rate with a low dot-ball rate, he has finished the innings.
