Ambrose who led West Indies to a 1-1 series draw against a low on confidence English side after a five wicket three day victory in the final test match.

Ambrose who said that he was aware of the offers the players get from leagues like IPL also added that the players giving up international cricket for such domestic leagues must face the consequences of the decisions they make. Ambrose who felt that a nation should name the best and the strongest team for a series against a test playing nation said that it was unfortunate to miss out on top players playing in the IPL and added that the decision is in the hands of the player and that no one can ask them to change their decision.

Ambrose said that the offers that the IPL give the players are hard to turn down added that they have to make do with the squad in hand and that the players returning from IPL should not be given a place in the test squad straight away.
