The West Indies team, after a strong pre-tournament showing, is considered a top contender to unseat 2010 Champion England, for the World Twenty20 title this year.
Led by Captain Darren Sammy, the West Indies includes the return of Jamaican Chris Gayle, who scored the first ever Twenty20 International hundred, in the inaugural World Twenty20 Championship in 2007.
Other world-rated players include Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo.
Captain Merissa Aguillera and Vice-Captain Stafanie Taylor, the leading all-rounder in women’s cricket, anchor a competitive West Indies women’s side.
Several of the world’s top players also are on the team: off-spinner Anisa Mohammed, left-handed all-rounder Shanel Daley, world record-holder Deandra Dottin, and fast bowler Shakera Selman.
