West Indies have named their 15-man preliminary squad for this year's World Cup, with Andre Russell and Evin Lewis both featuring.

Under new management at every level following the recent change in president at Cricket West Indies and subsequent sacking of former coach Richard Pybus, Windies have put together a strong set of players for the competition.

Led by captain Jason Holder, it includes formidable allrounder Russell - who has been in excellent form with Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League - and powerful opening batsman Lewis.

Chris Gayle will take his position at the top of the order alongside Lewis, while the experience of Darren Bravo adds weight to the middle order.

Shimron Hetmyer, the explosive and exciting young batting talent, is picked but there is no place for Kieron Pollard.

Teams must confirm their final 15-man squads by May 23, with changes after that point only permitted if they are approved by an ICC panel.

West Indies squad: Jason Holder, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Evin Lewis, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach, Nicholas Pooran, Oshane Thomas, Shai Hope, Shannon Gabriel, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer
