According to a WICB media release issued today, the 27-year-old Charles is a top order batsman who can also keep wicket. He is also an occasional medium-pace bowler.

Charles represented the West Indies in 23 T20 Internationals so far and was a member of the team which won the ICC World T20 in Sri Lanka in 2012.

During that tournament he was Man-of-the-Match against England with a match-winning 84 at Pallekele in the quarter-finals.

The West Indies are due to arrive in Kolkata on March 7 ahead of the tournament. They will have official warm-up matches against India on Thursday, March 10, and against Australia on Sunday, March 13.

West Indies have been drawn in Group 1 of the Super 10 stage where they will play alongside England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and one of the qualifiers from the first round. (WICB)
