All-rounders: Raymon Reifer, Jason Holder, Corey Anderson
Bowlers: Sheldon Cottrell, Hayden Walsh, Rashid Khan (vc)
Rashid Khan is a man of many layers. Not only is he a spectacular leg-spinner but also an agile fielder and a handy batsman. He needs 4 wickets to join the 300 club in T20s. He is only one of the two bowlers to have taken 4 wickets in 4 balls in T20Is.
Evin Lewis has scored as many as 4 hundreds and 29 fifties in T20s. In the 2019 edition of the Caribbean T20 League, he managed 265 runs with a strike rate of 150 in 10 games.
Hayden Walsh was the highest wicket-taker in the last season. He picked up 22 wickets in a mere 9 games with his wily leg-spin. His best figures read 5 for 19.
Johnson Charles did the bulk of the batting for Barbados, smashing 415 runs including three half-centuries. His overall T20 record is mighty impressive: he has scored 4,026 including a hundred and 25 fifties in 166 games.
Chris Lynn is one of the most powerful strikers and the most sought-after batsman in the format. In 184 games he has hit 5,096 runs with an outstanding strike rate of 144, comprising 2 hundreds and 34 fifties.
Sheldon Cottrell wears his heart on his sleeves. No matter what situation his team is in, he gives his all. The advantage of having him is that he bowls in the powerplay as well as death, giving him more opportunities to snipe up wickets.
Jason Holder isn’t as lethal in T20s as he is in Tests, but his ability to be effective with both bat and ball makes him a handy player in fantasy cricket.
On his day, Corey Anderson can reduce any bowling attack to a punching bag. With the ball, he has a variety of deliveries in his armoury to outsmart the batsmen. It is his all-round skills that make him an impactful player.
Barbados: Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Jonathan Carter, Corey Anderson, Jason Holder (c), Raymon Reifer, Ashley Nurse/ Mitchell Santner, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh Jr.
St Kitts and Nevis: Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Nicholas Kelly, Joshua Da Silva, Rayad Emrit (c), Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph
