West Indies' domination was come to an end when the Indian legend Kapil Dev thrashed Caribbean’s in final and clinched the 1983 World Cup for India.

The Caribbean team has not been able to reign supreme after that.

This time around, all-rounder Darren Sammy leads the 'Maroon Brigade' which banks heavily on Chris Gayle's batting prowess. Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo also add muscle to the batting order.

The Windies have won 35 and lost 21 World Cup games in 57 matches.

Ramnaresh Sarwan has been a last-minute inclusion and one can expect a lot from him.

The team fastest bowler Kemar Roach will lead the pace attack. West Indies are in Group B with England, South Africa, India, Bangladesh, Ireland and Netherlands.
