The same squad means the big names like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, and Kieron Pollard will not feature in the first two games. The team will be led by all-rounder Jason Holder. Their pace bowling spearhead Shannon Gabriel will miss out on the first two matches of the series though, as he is still recovering from an injury.
