Players to watch out
Apart from Darren Sammy, their team has as many as eight players from the West Indies which makes it an attractive side to look out for. Nicholas Pooran will be the number one player in this list after he did really well in this year's Caribbean Premier League and broke to the national side to continue with his form.
Andre Russell and Dwayne Smith are the other two players as these two are amongst the hardest hitters of the white ball. Wahab Riaz will be the one to watch out for with the ball as he had a decent time in the Pakistan Super League earlier this year. He is also currently out from the Pakistan national side, so, he will have a point to prove to make a comeback in that team.
