West Indies Cricket World Cup Squad - West Indies Betting Odds

The current West Indies team is a shadow of the one that was so dominant in the 80's and they look to have very little chance of repeating that success in 2011; the boys from the Caribbean have been on a downward spiral for a number of years with only moments of promise thrown in. There is no doubt that they have some talented players at their disposal but the strength in depth is lacking, more often than not the West indies are a team that flatter to deceive and the Cricket World Cup Betting is suggesting that could happen again at this tournament.

They do have an explosvie hitter at the top of the order in Chris Gayle and he is of course featuring heavily in the top run scorer betting at the moment. If Gayle fails though it is all too common to see the batting order collapse when under pressure, Shiv Chanderpaul can offer some resistance with his experience but the young stars are simply not coming through.

We would expect the West indies to make it through the group stages in 2011 despite having a tough group involving England, South Africa and India, they will need to avoid any embarrassing slip ups against the likes Bangladesh though if they are to move onto the next phase.

The West Indies Squad will feature most of the current team including the likes of Chris Gayle and Darren Sammy who will be the Captain of the team.
