The West Indies team has yet again started heating up with controversies, just ahead of the India tour of West Indies. It has become a common thing in the recent times with the players of the Caribbean making controversial comments over the members of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) or even on their fellow players, most probably over the biased selection process.
Similar to the earlier issues, senior wicket keeper and batsman Denesh Ramdin lashed out at the West Indies Selection Panel chairman, Courtney Browne for not selecting him for the upcoming series against India citing ‘poor performance’ as a reason.
Ramdin, took it a bit seriously and had expressed his anguish through his twitter handle. His comments went controversial with the wicket-keeper digging the capabilities of Courtney Browne when he was a player himself. “The man who is telling me that my average is just 25, had an average of just 16 and has never scored a hundred through out his life. Shameless”, Ramdin tweeted.
Ramdin averaged only 25 in the recently concluded tri-series involving Australia and South Africa. However, to be precise most of the matches of the tri-series were low scoring games and the batsmen had no scope to perform the best on those pitches. However, the West Indian averaged better during the tour of Australia before the tri-series.
Though the West Indies national team selection panel is yet to announce the official team for the series against India, it has been learnt that the current 12-member team drafted for the practice matches against India will be the final.
Browne has replaced Clive Lloyd as the Chairman of the Selection Panel, last month.
