Senior West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Darren Sammy have lashed out the selectors for ignoring them for the ODI tri-series involving Australia and South Africa next month.
The trio was part of the World T20 winning team and the exclusion from the ODI squad did not go down well with them. The players who returned to side are Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine. Bravo took to Twitter to express his displeasure at the selectors’ logic.
“Joke of the day: WI selectors?? One minute Pollard & Narine were not good enough & now are perfect for Tri Nation series? It’s like magic!” wrote Bravo, who is currently playing in the Indian Premier League. He added: “One minute we have to be available for domestic super 50 to be selected and the next minute, it seems we don’t. Magic! Get serious people!”
In a series of posts, Gayle and Sammy also slammed the selectors. “@KieronPollard55 & #SunilNarine selected for WI Tri-Series. How is that possible @westindies?” asked Gayle on Twitter.
“WICB stop Sunil from playing super 50 and now they pick him. If @KieronPollard55 was fit he would’ve play the B Bash just like the rest of us!!” the southpaw said in another post.
