Batsman:

Shivnarine Chanderpaul: The return of the prodigal opener

Before the discovery of Chris Gayle and Wavell Hinds as a potent opening combination, it was Shivnarine Chanderpaul who walked out first for the West Indies, usually in the company of an inexperienced, struggling aspirant for the slot. In this World Cup, after the Hinds-Gayle combination failed repeatedly, the by- now-veteran Chanderpaul was recalled from the middle order to pad up first, and as has been his wont for the West Indies, he did not disappoint. Striking 66 off 72 balls, with two fours and seven sixes, Chanderpaul even out-scored the normally belligerent Gayle, pelting the Kenyan bowlers mercilessly around the park. His knock provided just the launch pad for a West Indian total that guaranteed against a shock upset like that of the 1996 World Cup.

Vasbert Drakes: Stellar re-entry

As if being left out in the cold for years was too much to bear, Vasbert Drakes is using every opportunity he can lay his hands on to make sure that he stays in the West Indian team for good. A number of teams - India, Bangladesh and Canada, for example - have felt his spirit in recent times, and Kenya can count themselves latest additions to the club. Bowling his 10 overs for just 33 runs, Drakes picked five wickets, including the all- important one of Kenyan skipper Steve Tikolo, and spurred his side to a pride-redeeming 142-run win.

Fielder:

Ricardo Powell: On fire in the field

Ricardo Powell is usually expected to provide the fireworks with the bat, but in the absence of willow-power, Powell usually makes up for it with some awesome displays of fielding. He has been a revelation in the infield in recent times for the West Indies, and against Kenya, it was no different. Hurling himself every which way, Powell stopped runs galore and, to boot, snapped up the catches of David Obuya and Collins Obuya, leaving Kenya reeling at 62 for eight.
