West Indies Same Playing XI

Powell will lead the side again while Pooran will hold the wickets. Brandon King, Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles will make up the top order, followed by Shimron Hetmyer and Powell in the middle order. Holder and Shepherd will provide the overall balance, while Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph and Obed McCoy will form the pace and spin attack.
