He completed the squad, after three of the original 15 selected pulled out. Allrounder Carlos Brathwaite replaced an injured Kieron Pollard, and offspinner Ashley Nurse replaced Sunil Narine, who was still to correct his technique.

The West Indies, leaving for India in two weeks, is in Group 1 of the Super 10 stage with England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and a qualifier yet to be determined.
