Kieron Pollard is set for an increased workload as West Indies look to fill the hole created by Dwayne Bravo's exit from the World Cup.
Bravo hurt his knee in the seven-wicket defeat to South Africa last Thursday and has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament.
Skipper Darren Sammy revealed his side are considering moving Pollard, the big-hitting Trinidad all-rounder, into the vacant number five spot for Monday's Group B meeting with the Netherlands at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla.
"We might push him (Pollard) up the order to maximise his potentials," said Sammy.
"He has a lot of experience in these conditions after playing in the IPL and we need to use that."
West Indies are also likely to include an extra spinner in the shape of orthodox left-armer Nikita Miller.
"Nikita Miller has a strong case for making the playing XI on this Kotla track," added Sammy.
"We know what to expect from the pitch now that we have played a match on the surface, it is a must-win game for us."
The Netherlands gave England a scare in their opening match after Ryan ten Doeschate's century powered them to a total of 292-6.
England managed to overhaul their target with eight balls to spare but skipper Peter Borren is optimistic of causing further problems against West Indies.
"We have got a few more games and a chance to shine at this level, may be for the last time," said Borren, referring to the International Cricket Council's decision to cut the number of teams from 14 to 10 for the next World Cup in 2015.
"We had a good start against England. It is a real opportunity for the guys (to create an upset)."
