T20 World Cup: Ravi Rampaul returns but Sunil Narine is left out as West Indies announce T20 World Cup Squad

Ravi Rampaul the man who was a part of the 2012 World Cup-winning team returns for the first time since 2015 as the West Indies announce their squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The lead selector Roger Harper had the following to say:

Roger Harper, CWI’s Lead Selector said:

“The squad is one with good depth and strength in all departments. There is tremendous T20 experience along with World Cup winning experience which should stand the team in good stead. This squad is made up of many world-beating players who, once knitted into a world-beating team, will be extremely difficult to beat. I expect the team to do very well and with the ‘rub of the green’ I think the team has a good chance of defending the title.”

He also made the following statement about the inclusion of Ravi Rampaul:

“Ravi Rampaul is a highly experienced bowler who performed well in the last CG Insurance Super50 Cup and the current Hero CPL to date. He will boost the team’s wicket-taking options in the power-play and the middle phase and will provide another option for the death overs.”
