All-rounder Andre Russell and Sunil Narine have been excluded from the squad. West Indies have picked spinner Yannic Cariah and all-rounder, Raymon Reifer, as their two uncapped players in the 15-man team. Left-handed batter Evin Lewis who last played in the T20 WC 2021 has also been included in the team.
