The Host Nation: A Peek into the Country’s Cricket Legacy

West Indies cricket was once the undisputed cricket champions in the 70s to early 90s. The current cricket of the Caribbean Island is a mere shadow of their glorious past.

The Windies dominated the game for almost two decades in both formats of cricket till the Australians took over the leadership role in the world of cricket.

While West Indies cricket is not a formidable test team today, it however is one of the most dangerous teams in the T20 format. With infights amongst the cricket boards and players, many players preferred to ignore West Indies cricket and focussed on T20 Franchise cricket. These players are the most sought-after players in all major T20 Franchise tournaments.

The charisma, punk, and flair that were associated with the Caribbean style of playing are still seen in the T20 Format and the crowds come to see the same. The game of cricket is still very popular on the Islands.

The current Windies team has been a team to be feared in the T20 format due to their unpredictability. They can turn up one day beating the best and can shock fans losing to minnows.

West Indies, with their explosive style of play, clinched the T20 World Cup title twice, in 2012 and 2016, showcasing their prowess in the shortest format

Being host to the 2024 edition will be motivation enough for West Indies to look for their 3rd World T20 Championship.
