West Indies in Bangladesh 2011 September 23, 2011

Gayle ignored, Ramdin back for Bangladesh tour

Chris Gayle, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Dwayne Bravo do not feature in the West Indies Test and ODI squads for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin has been recalled to both squads, while offspinner Shane Shillingford, who underwent remedial work on an action that was deemed illegal last year, has made the Test side.

Gayle has not played for West Indies since the 2011 World Cup, following a breakdown in his relationship with the West Indies board. He chose to participate in the IPL in April, after being left out of a training camp ahead of the home series against Pakistan. In a hard-hitting interview with KLAS Sports, he had questioned his treatment by members of the board, including chief executive Ernest Hilaire, and the coach Ottis Gibson, after he picked up an injury during the World Cup.

Since then, Gayle had a series of discussions with the board, including a one-on-one with Hilaire on August 23. Though the discussion was reported to be "frank and excellent", Gayle recently revealed that the stalemate was set to continue since he had refused to apologise to Gibson for statements made during the radio interview.

"The outstanding matter relating to Chris Gayle's availability and selection remains unresolved," the board's release read. "The WICB management will submit a report to the board of directors after which a conclusive statement will be made."

Bravo was not picked though he was considered for selection, while Sarwan was left out due to injury. Sarwan had been recalled for the home series against Pakistan and India, and looked in good touch during the India ODIs. He struggled in the Test series that followed, though, and missed the final match. Shivnarine Chanderpaul retained his spot in the Test side following a match-saving effort in the Basseterre Test.

Ramdin's return meant there was no place for Carlton Baugh in the ODI set-up, though Baugh was included in the Test side. Openers Kieran Powell and Kraigg Brathwaite, who made their Test debuts in the home season, also found places in the touring party, while Barbados allrounder Carlos Brathwaite got a maiden call-up to the ODI side.

The tour begins on October 7 with the first of two warm-up matches, followed by a solitary Twenty20, three ODIs and two Tests. Darren Sammy will continue to lead the side.

ODI and T20 squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Adrian Barath, Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Danza Hyatt, Anthony Martin, Kieron Pollard, Kieran Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons

Test squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh (wk), Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards, Kieran Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford.

    @ Surazz Shrestha .. If you love Chris Gayle so much , why don't you co-opt him? Take him , let him play for which ever team or country you support . West Indies cricket is not only about Chris Gayle ..

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on September 26, 2011, 14:31 GMT

    The amazing win against England shows the potential of WI. They can rebuild themselves as a strong team without Gayle, Bravo, Sarwan & Chanderpaul in upcoming years.

  • RandyOZ on September 26, 2011, 2:13 GMT

    The Windies are in a shambles. Especially that with us they are classified as one of the two greatest teams of all time. That's right England you arent close!

  • on September 25, 2011, 20:29 GMT

    its just backward the way the WICB choses players. even if a player is given a chance to play there is usually no continuity as he may not be choosen again for another to to three series even if he performs well. they keep choosing players based on reputation rather than performance. therefore there is no pressure to perform as there are some players who are virtually assured of a game. the captain is a prime example. It jus goes to show that we need to develop more leaders. also we need more than one captains for different formats of the game.

    3 future B's for WI: Bravo, Barath and Brathwaite 3 future R's for WI: Rampaul, Roach and Russell these six players hav the potential to bring back WI from their slump

    @Karmat Baig ! As far as WI cricket is concerned ,Darren Ganga's shelf life has expired,his best by date has long gone.Now that the selectors had a good opportunity to groom Simmons as the keeper for next years' T20 World Cup,they up,and select one Denesh Ramdin again !Well ! Well ! Well ! No ! this is not the story of the 3 Wells, this is what is known as the story of the WI selectors.Can you imagine Bonner batting at no.5 for the WI, and Christian keeping wicket in the year 2011 ? Can you imagine Johnson Charles and Miles Bascombe being counted among those who have opened for the WI,among greats such as Gordon Grennidge,Desmond Haynes,Conrad Hunte and Roy Fredericks? One smart get catch at two smart door,(Dwayne Bravo),in my humble opinion,needs another year and a half to see if he has regained focus.

  • KarmatBaig on September 24, 2011, 16:24 GMT

    Why don't they select Darren Ganga as Captain as he would bring some solidity to batting, no matters for two to three years and has has shown to be a better tactician and ability to gel the team into a winning combination as the he has for T&T during the lat two T20 Champions League.

  • on September 24, 2011, 12:34 GMT

    I guarantee that if Otis,Hillaire and Sammy were to be replaced, and Gayle, Sarwan and whoever the critics want back, were brought back and we kept loosing, WICB would still be blamed. Let"s move the HQ out of Antigua and back to one of the big 4s, preferably T&T and go back to the selection of the teams from just Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica and Barbados

  • on September 24, 2011, 12:00 GMT

    Why do we constanly waste time about Christ gale inclusion in west indies team when he has done nothing for west indies cricket. He must apologize for disrespecting the people he worked for,he must be a servant of west indies cricket to represent us. He is arrogant and ignorant the energy he produced in the camp is not heathy at all let him go if he has no respect.where has he taken us with his so call leadership or batting ability no where, so why worry about him, let make his millions he is a poor boy with millions because of his thinking, we don't need him to lose we have lost so many games depending on him and he never deliver. I do not have worry about gale I have seen all of the greats west Indian batsmen and they are all better than gale and they all have contributed to great a west indies cricket team and region gale don't have the ability to do so why bother. Left him out if refuse to apologize. I saw west indies in eland yesterday they lack professionalism and leave Sammy aln

  • chandau on September 24, 2011, 8:10 GMT

    @ Herath-UK : CHk the news again mate. Gayle did not shun country over IPL it was the other way around. He went to India AFTER he was dropped by WICB. May be u need to understand the most important point. GAYLE's job is playing cricket. If he loses his job at one place it is only fair he finds another. That is simple economics. It is pathetic how people castigate cricketers for earning money. What happens today in the business world?? the motto is "have MBA - will travel"! no one questions them for moving from one job to another. Another point is cricketers have little shelf value. By mid 30 they need to find another job or if lucky earn enough for the rest of their lives. Its a pity some people put their egos before the job. After all administrators are there because of cricketers not vice versa. WI need to look at Zimbabwe and realize country can lose cricket because of idiotic administrators. but cricketers will thrive if they are good, like Flower and co in UK

  • IrfanRocks on September 24, 2011, 1:57 GMT

    @ whoever comments on gayle...WICB Selectors doesnt look on IPL/CLT20 other format of t20 domestic games...like Indian cricket team Selectors does, look at the indian team right now.....so stop wasting your time on posting about Gayle...he is not enough fit for WI thats why he is being dropped.

  • PACERONE on September 24, 2011, 0:09 GMT

    Management and coaches do not win matches or entertain fans.Anyone that watched that fiasco in England will understand that there is no sign of any improvement.Sammy is blaming the batsmen.Bopara had 4 for 10 and the W.I could not get one wicket.Sammy is playing as a bowler and the coach is a bowling coach.This does not look good. I predict that the coach will be gone after India.W.I will be hard pressed to win one game.Bangladesh has aggressive batsmen that will hammer W.I bowling and the spinners will weave webs around them.It is too bad that our young good players have to start their careers with this type of situation.I am sorry for Bishoo,Bravo,Barath,and Brathwaithe these young players deserve better.When will Sammy be dropped?Are we going to play with 10 men for ever?

  • chunnie on September 23, 2011, 23:48 GMT

    @Metman, my bad. I meant the domestic ODIs. And I'm not saying that he shouldn't be selected. On the contrary, I think he should be given a chance. But I'm pointing out the double standards by the WICB in enforcing their own ridiculous rules...

  • on September 23, 2011, 23:30 GMT

    I don't know why people are questioning why bravo is out of the squad. He had been in the squad for about 6 years and always flopped when the team needed the most. I will always believe that narsingh deonarine should be on the test squad not only due to his all round ability which can be handy, but his patience and stability he brings to a middle order. Last year he made a brilliant 82 against the aussies in tough conditions. Isn't that good enough?

  • Metman on September 23, 2011, 21:14 GMT

    @chunnie !Carlos Brathwaite played one match for Bdos in ths years' T20 competition !What is your problem ?He was the leading up and coming allrounder in this years' 4 day competition.He has better averages than Charles,Bascombe,Bonner,Barnwell.Can't you recognised talent ?Nobody is questioning the continued inclusion of one Kieron Pollard,who is a well known,confirmed ,established and renown failure against quality bowling.Check his scores against quality bowling in the ODI's from the last tour of SL,through the world cup,and against Pak.and India in the WI earlier this year.

  • Herath-UK on September 23, 2011, 21:12 GMT

    I like the firm stand WICB has taken over Gayle who has shunned the country over IPL.Irrespective of his value to the team the discipline has to be maintained .Though Malinga did the same at least there is the mitigating issue of permanent injury in his case. Ranil Herath - Kent

  • BigINDFan on September 23, 2011, 19:07 GMT

    Gayle has an ego yes but he made those statements about the coach and captain to prove a point. Even if he apologizes he will not last long in the team since he has burned bridges with the coach and captain. This standoff is insulting the fans and the players who are actually representing the WI team. Learn from what happened to Ind under Greg Chappell and Ganguly. Neither of them are around anymore and Dhoni won the WC. Select a captain who is the future (Dwayne Bravo is the best choice), select a coach who shows results (plenty of good coaches out there) and form a team for each format and stick to that team for the next 4 years. Remember Steve Waugh and his world dominating team? Or even earlier Clive Lloyd and the all powerful WI super stars? Gayle should play becoz he is a good player. He is not a good captain. If his form dips replace him. Right now he is in excellent form and will contribute for another 2-4 years easily!

  • BustIPL on September 23, 2011, 16:11 GMT

    We should feel for Gayle who was man of IPL and would have got fatigue factor. His absence against Pakistan gave others good practice that we all know was very useful against Indians. Later on, it was demonstrated in England how badly IPL fatigue served the Indians. Now, CLT20 came and he has to represent his team there as well. Now there is again a chance for new comers to win without him as they did in the past. Even England who are T20 champions have selected their second string side in T20s against WI. So, WI also have the right to play their youngsters. But I will be glad to see Gayle back once this rebuilding of WI finishes. Also, Sammy has been a good captain and like Dhoni wants to win without big names which is good attacking technique. Hopefully, WI will demolish Bangladesh who performed dismally against re-emerging Zim.

  • delboy on September 23, 2011, 15:21 GMT

    @chrisgus I am not the originator of the phrase 'LIES, DAMN LIES and STATISTICS' averages are meaningless unless there is some congrence between the samples from which they are determined. How many test has Sammy played? How many has Anderson played etc then look at the oppositions for true comparison.

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on September 23, 2011, 14:36 GMT

    Bangladesh must show good contest in this series. No doubt, WI is missing service from 3 of their best 4 batsmen in recent years. No Gayle, Sarwan & Dwayne Bravo here & only Chanderpaul is only in test side. So it's time to wake up for BD in their home series. Otherwise their Test status will b questioned more than ever b4.

  • BustIPL on September 23, 2011, 13:44 GMT

    I hope Gayle will be back as soon as a formidable opposition is to be faced same applies to Sarwan. In the meantime WI board has tried youngster keeping future in mind. Against India it worked out well and against Bangladesh again it is a good chance to test the bench strength.

  • cricchic on September 23, 2011, 13:12 GMT

    W.I will always play a bowler or batsman short, because Sammy is filling that slot...either Roach, Ramphal, Taylor or Edwards will be left out, therefore weakening the team...Sammy can be the T20 & ODI Captain, but it obvious he is not a great test player..We the W.I fans call pull our hair out from now until next year..The board will continue to make ill decisions..Guess we will have to wait another 8yrs until Sammy retires then we will have a full strength test side...

  • ramps_wi on September 23, 2011, 12:39 GMT

    I think people have become numb to these decisions and therefore we do not really care who plays anymore. Who needs to see windies when Trinidad has made winning a habit. WI selectors and board changing player after player when all they have to do change the captain. Imagine Badree has 4 -0-7-2 and he cannot make the T20 side. Let me go and watch champions league yes

  • daephias on September 23, 2011, 12:22 GMT

    I have been a devoted fan of WI cricket from ever since. But I find it hard to support a team as this one. When it is that a board and a coach are making decisions that nobody else in the cricketing world can understand, the support that was once there will begin to fade. Just look at the grounds in the WI, they are 1/4 filled at max. What has Sammy done to deserve a test place? In a struggling team you have to find a place for him, that is not right. In the end, Gayle needs to play and we want him to play. Dwayne Bravo MUST be on the side as well. There are being to much players coming in and out of the WI team to rebuild. This is perfect evidence that the current administration has no clue of what they are doing. Thank You Ernest Hiliare and Ottis Gibson for destroying the game that we love and want to support. I hope that you guys are happy with yourself watching WI play in empty stadiums. Please do the right thing resign and leave our game alone.

  • zekie on September 23, 2011, 12:14 GMT

    I am so sorry for W.I. cricket, over the last years we have not been selecting the best cricket team but the players who follow the W.I board orders step by step. I really don't understand the selection policy but the team selected are not the best players we have and it criminal. Are all they good player carring an attitude problem it doubt not all the time even when we were winning player were complaining about the way the board handle stuff and it not better now. I am so sorry for West Indies Cricket

    what happen to permaul and barnwell ???

  • sircarl on September 23, 2011, 11:49 GMT

    I was a big fan of Gayle but is it so hard for him to just apologise? How can you call the very coach that you want to play under a "user" and say that he ruined the confidence of another player and expect to just stroll in and play under him!? The coach's authority would be forever ruined! He would never be able to command the respect of the players again. How can Gayle expect to play for a captain that he has, at the very least, strongly suggested is unworthy of being captain? If all that is being asked is an apology can't he just give a generic one and move on? Blame it on being hurt or disappointed or on misunderstanding and move on man! If your pride is more important than playing for WI then so be it. Just retire and end the soap opera!

  • chilling on September 23, 2011, 11:31 GMT

    we always talk about rebuilding, rebuilding, and yet we keep trying so many different players. Devon Smith was the only one to perform in the last England tour and yet he has been left out. It is true he have had his chances but still you need you most experience players. Nelon Pascal we tour with him to gain experience and yet we forget him. we need to give players a break and let them play cricket relax, right now those on tour are playing under pressure because they once they fail its good bye. that need to stop and give players time to develop since our regional competition is not of high standard at all. hats of to you guys up there in England make us proud.

  • Sachit1979 on September 23, 2011, 8:12 GMT

    Few unresolved questions: 1.> Why selectors did not wait for 3 more days to see the performances of so many new comers or re-comers they have included for England tour. What if one or more of Bascombe, Charles, Christian, Bonner, Mathurin or Dwyane Smith perform really well in England? Won't they deserve ticket to Bangladesh? 2.> Why Ramdin when Baugh did good in recently concluded Indian tour? 3.> On which role Sammy fits in a test side? 4.> Why Anthony Martin included as second leg break bowler for ODIs when Bishoo was already there? Why not Gary Mathurin or Ryan Austin to add variety in attack? 5.> Last but not least why Gayle and Dwayne Bravo are ignored again?

  • on September 23, 2011, 8:01 GMT

    I would like to see the following XI for WI with Gayle as captain, as and when it is possible: Chris Gayle, Shiv Chanderpaul, Darren Bravo, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Carlton Baugh, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo, Fidel Edwards (12th man)
