West Indies factbox for the Twenty20 World Cup opening at Lord's on Friday:
A match for any team when fit and fully focused, as they showed in their demolition of England in the Stanford Twenty20 match last year. Captain and opener Chris Gayle can win a game on his own.
After regaining the Wisden trophy against England in the Caribbean this year, succumbed supinely in the return test and one-day series.
Dwayne Bravo, who missed the test series in England because of a lingering ankle injury, is a free-scoring batsman, more than useful medium-fast bowler and dynamic fielder.
Chris Gayle (captain), Lionel Baker, Sulieman Benn, David Bernard, Dwayne Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Andre Fletcher, Xavier Marshall, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Darren Sammy, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons, Jerome Taylor.
