Top Caribbean cricket commentator Fazeer Mohammed does not foresee any softening of the stance taken by the West Indies Cricket Board to exclude the leading stars from the one day team for the upcoming tri-nation series.
“Remember last year they had the situation with Shivnarine Chanderpaul and even at that time the President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) saying they would like to give a nice farewell to Chanderpaul but the selectors thought differently. They got rid of Chanderpaul at that stage; earlier they had gotten rid of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard ahead of the World Cup. So you get the impression that the West Indies selectors are not prepared to bow to any pressure which often comes from people or the media,” said Mohammed.
Mohammed also believes the Dave Cameron-led board should be given some credit for the achievement at the T20 World Cup, with the men and women winning the titles.
