The Windies squad has been announced for the upcoming 2-match T20 series against the West Indies and Sri Lanka. Andre Russell, who was not part of the National T20 team for a long time, has returned. Russell will play the first T20 match since August 2018. One of the reasons behind Russell's return is this year's ICC T20 World Cup.
Oshen Thomas has also returned along with Russell. Thomas is now fully recovered after the car accident and that is why his return has been possible. His return will strengthen the bowling of the team. Russell and Thaes, including Shai Hope and Fabian Allen, will also return from the series who were injured. The Windies have a good option as a hope. That's where Alan does well in spin.
Shimron Hetmyer, who was dropped from the squad during the ODI, has regained his fitness level and is available for the T20 series. Hetmyer's presence would enable the team to score and score big. The first match will be played at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on 4 March and the second match on 6 March.
West Indies T20 squad against Sri Lanka: Kirron Pollard (captain), Fabian Allen, Dwayne Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetimer, Shai Hope, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Andre Melel, Lendl Simmons, Osane Thomas, Hayden Walsh Jr. , Kesrick Williams
