West Indies recall Evin Lewis for T20 World Cup, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine left out | Cricket News

Reminder of the West Indies Evin Lewis Wednesday for the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia, but ruled out all-rounder Andre Russell and spinner Sunil Narine as part of their 15-man squad.
Southpaw Lewis last played for the team in 2021 T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates while veterans Russell and Narine have been overlooked by coaches in recent months.
West Indies included uncapped all-rounders Yannic Cariah and Raymon Reifer in the squad, which will be managed by Nicholas Pooran with Rovman Powell as his assistant.
However, there was also no room for the versatile Fabian Allen.
“We have selected a mix of youth and experience to represent the West Indies,” said head coach Desmond Haynes.
“In the selection process, we were aware of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League and looked at players who have performed very well.”
The two-time champions West Indies face Australia in a two-match series heading into the World Cup before facing Scotland in their opener on October 17.
Crew: Nicholas Pooran (captain), Rovman Powell, Yannic Cariah, Johnson Charles, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Kyle Mayers, Obed McCoy, Raymon Reifer, Odean Smith
