Defending champions West Indies have picked Ravi Rampaul in their 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup for the first time since 2015 but six-smasher Carlos Brathwaite has not been included. The thirty-six-year-old Rampaul has returned to the West Indies T20 team for the first time in six years. Chief selector Roger Harper said, “Ram’s presence will enhance the team’s ability to take wickets in the powerplay and middle overs and will provide another option in the death overs as well.”

Brathwaite had led West Indies to the title by hitting four consecutive sixes in the last over of Ben Stokes in the T20 World Cup 2016. The Caribbean team won by four wickets with two balls to spare in the final played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Roston Chase has been included in the T20 squad for the first time due to his impressive performance in the Caribbean Premier League.

West Indies will play their first match against England in Abu Dhabi on 23 October. Apart from these two teams in Group One, South Africa, Australia and two qualifiers are included. The T20 World Cup will be played from October 17 to November 14 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The West Indies team is as follows: Kieron Pollard (c), Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen, Dwayne Bravo, Roston Chase, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Obed McCoy, Lendl Simmons, Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh Jr.
Reserve: Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Jason Holder, Akil Hossein.
