The West Indies cricket is plagued by serious issues with their cricket administrators and it shows no sign of easing after high-profile players took to social media to publicly query the latest squad selections.
Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, and Dwayne Bravo were all left out of the West Indies squad for the first four tri-nation one-day international series.
Offspinner Sunil Narine and all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who have not played international cricket since November 2015, were included in the 14-man squad for the series against Australia and South Africa starting from June 3.
The team will be captained by Jason Holder and also includes World T20 heroes Carlos Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels.
The WICB’s current policy prevents players who don’t make themselves available for domestic competitions from are barred from international selection, due to which some of the top stars have failed to make it to the Windies’ Test and ODI sides.
Bravo, Sammy and Gayle all took to Twitter, congratulating Pollard and Narine, but left little doubt about their lingering animosity for the WICB.
Darren Sammy also tweeted about the issue, congratulating Pollard on his selection in the squad but also sarcastically asked him the how he was selected after missing the domestic season.
Pollard was quick to reply to Sammy’s tweet.
Chris Gayle also expressed his surprise over Pollard and Narine’s selection.
