The chairman of West Indies cricket Clive Lloyd says that he cannot fault the West Indies star players preferring lucrative T20 leagues than Test cricket.

Their star players like Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo and Samuel Badree are playing in the domestic Big bash tournament while the lackluster test team is 2-0 down to Australia going into the final test starting on Sunday.

 Lloyd said on Friday that, “with the money that is being paid in these shorter games it’s obvious that players are looking towards their future and, unfortunately, we’re missing out” and that “we’re left with a vacuum and we now have to fill that.”

Lloyd said Gayle could return to Test cricket but “you have to play in our four-day competition before you’re selected for the longer game.”

West Indies has been outplayed in the two Test matches so far with lots of comforts. West Indies star players participate in T20 leagues like Indian Premier League, Big Bash league, has been a way for the West Indies cricketers. These top West Indies stars have played in all these leagues and made a lot of money out of it.

The West Indies players are not interested in test matches anymore and have become an ordinary Test match side.
