Johnson Charles has been named in the West Indies team for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe later this month. The 34-year old will be a replacement for the injured Guyanese spinner Gudakesh Motie.
Charles’ recent performances on his return to the ODI team, as well as his overall limited overs form played a major role in his call up. His 64 off 46 deliveries helped the Windies overcome the UAE in their 2nd One-Day match in Sharjah. The St. Lucian will hope to add experience to the side, as he is the only active player in the team, who won the 2016 World T20 Final against England.
When asked how his recent form came to be, Charles was adamant that he just kept things simple. “I just had to work on the basics,” Charles said after the second ODI. “It’s not much, but just trying to keep my balance and not trying to over-hit the ball and having a strong base. And hit the ball where it has to be hit and that’s what I’ve been working on.” he added.

World Cup Qualifying action begins for the Windies on June 16th versus the USA.
