Former Windies Player Disagrees with Selection Process

Former West Indies player Bryan Davis believes the policy of the West Indies Cricket Board to only select players who participate in the regional tournaments for the upcoming one-day tri-series that involves South Africa and Australia, is flawed. west indies winHis comments come against the background that several of the region’s top players including Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, and Lendl Simmons, members of the 2016 ICC Twenty20 World Cup champions, will not be selected to play against powerhouses South Africa and Australia this coming June. As many as eight players from that team will not be selected, according to the rules. WICB Director of Cricket Richard Pybus outlined this in an interview with regional media this week. “We got a selection policy and it stands. The selection policy is pretty straightforward,” Pybus said. But Davis, who played four Tests for the West Indies against Australia between March and May, 1965, said the West Indies needs to adopt a policy of selecting its best players. He added that the currently policy that was designed to have the senior players come home to play, was not working. Davis argued that asking a player to give up higher wages just so he can come home to play for less money is counter-productive
