West Indies ICC World Cup 2011 Profile

West Indies won two consecutive World Cup tournaments (1975 and 1979) in their glory days.
West Indies won two consecutive World Cup tournaments (1975 and 1979) in their glory days.


West Indies is not only of the strongest sides around but their flair and style is one that keeps the crowds interested. The batting has a lot of colour to it and batsmen like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo hold the ability to change things around with the bat in their hand.



Over the period of time, the lack of unity in the ranks has been their biggest weakness. The West Indies cricket is run by a cricket board which is mired in politics and mistrust and that has begun to show in their on-field performances. Ever since winning the first two editions of the World Cup and then finishing runner-up in the third, West Indies have never got to the final of another one and the deterioration has been brought about by their lack of professionalism, on and off the field.


West Indies have a new captain after a reluctant Chris Gayle was shown the door and Darren Sammy brought in. Usually, such a change, so close to the World Cup could have spelt doom but for a side like West Indies, the last thing one needed was a captain who was more interested in the monies of the IPL and the likes. Sammy should bring in a fresh perspective and help gelling the side together.


West Indies will find it difficult to adjust to the Indian sub-continental tracks more than most of the rest of the teams because of their lack of experience here. Some of the players from the sides like Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Sri Lanka have been a part of the IPL and hence shouldn’t have issues in adapting to the conditions but not too many West Indians have been here before. Without a quality spinner in their ranks, things could become even more difficult for the team and that will make it tough for the Caribbean team.

Previous Record

West Indies had won the first two editions of the World Cups and they were mesmerizing in the two tournaments. Both the World Cups were won without dropping a game and they had gone into the third one in 1983 as favourites. India had upset the West Indian applecart in the final and since then the West Indian side has struggled. They failed to get to the semi-finals of the 1987 and 1992 edition of the tournament and while in 1996, they fell to Australia in a close game. They failed again in 1999, 2003 and their home World Cup in 2007 and will look to at least get to the final four stage this time.

Expected Captain

Their current captain is Darren Sammy but it remains to be seen how this one pans out.

Players to look out for

West Indies will depend heavily on Gayle, Bravo and Pollard but will also need Shivnarine Chanderpaul to act as a senior partner through most part of the tournament. The side will also need a fit couple of pace bowlers in Jermaine Lawson and Jerome Taylor to have any chance of making it through.
