Following threatening comments from Dave Cameron, president of Cricket West Indies (CWI) on TVJ on Thursday that T&T’s Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard, together with Jamaican all-rounder Andre Russell, may never play for the regional side again, former one-day captain Dwayne Brave has responded. Yesterday, on I95.5FM, Dwayne Bravo, the elder brother of Darren Bravo, speaking with sports commentator Andre Errol Baptiste stated clearly, “I still want to play for the West Indies and never said otherwise. Once I am fit, that has not changed.”
Controversial Cricket West Indies president, Dave Cameron, has warned Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard they may never play for West Indies again, following their reluctance to represent the regional side at the upcoming ICC World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe.
CWI said on Thursday the T&T trio had snubbed offers to be included in the 15-man squad for the all-important March 4-25 tournament, where West Indies will be vying for one of the remaining two spots at the 2019 World Cup in England.
Three of West Indies cricket's biggest stars will not be making the trip to Zimbabwe to help the regional side try to qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019. This was confirmed today as Cricket West Indies (CWI) named its 15-man squad.
The squad is as follows:
T&T all rounder Rayad Emrit has been called up to the West Indies' Twenty20 International squad ahead of the three match series later this month in New Zealand.
This is the first time Emrit has been called up to the T20I squad. He is one of five Trinbagonians named in the 14-man squad. The other four include Samuel Badree, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and Jason Mohammed.
The West Indies 'A' team beat Sri Lanka 'a' in the third and final ODI last night.
Sheldon Cottrell was named the man of the match as the Windies 'A' romped to a 45-run win.
The Jamaican grabbed four for 19 to help skittle out the visitors for just 107 runs.
They were chasing 153 runs after the hosts themselves struggled in their innings.
Shamarh Brooks top-scored for the Windies 'A' with 35 while Andrew McCarthy made 27.
The victory meant the series finish one-all with the second ODI rained out.
