West Indies at the T20 World Cup – Results Every Edition

The West Indies don’t need a special introduction. They were a dangerous side in Tests and ODIs in the 20th century.

Now, in the 21st century, the Caribbeans are bossing the T20I format, giving opponents a run for their money. And it’s pretty evident from their 2 T20 World Cup triumphs.

This article will provide a rundown on the West Indies record in every T20 World Cup edition.
