Rovman Powell and Brandon King have some serious power hitting talent. They are very good slogger of the ball and can provide their team with match winning runs at crucial moments. Johnson Charles and Hetmyer can bat finely too.
In the bowling department, Akeal Hossein is their main man. He has 23 wickets in 22 matches. Jason Holder is an experienced and wonderful right hand fast bowler and on the Australian pitches, he will be crucial for West Indies as he can bowl bounce nicely due to his height. Another star bowler could be Sheldon Cottrell as he has different kinds of action that helps him in bowling at the good length
Looking at the Zimbabwe team, you’ll see they have brought some old and experienced players to their team. Wellington Masakadza and Tendai Chatara and Milton Shumba. Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad.
