Is Their Form Any Good?

In a nutshell, yes!

Among all the teams that are participating in the upcoming T20 World Cup, West Indies is one of the strongest.

How?

Well, for starters, the national cricket team of West Indies won most matches. For instance, they have already won two trophies back in the day. They beat Sri Lanka with a 36 run lead way back in 2012. They also beat England by four wickets way back in 2016.

West Indies will begin its campaign with a nail-biting match against team South Africa.

With two consecutive victories under their belt in T20 World Cups, West Indies have the potential to beat all the participating teams this year and take the trophy home once again.

With that stated, only time will tell what holds in the cards for team West Indies! 

Fingers crossed!
