Windies chief selector denies victimization of Bravo, Pollard

Jan 13, 2015 | Cricket, Sports | 0 comments

West Indies chief selector Clive Lloyd responded to criticisms of leaving Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard out of the ODI series in South Africa and the World Cup squad. Lloyd, a former Windies captain, says he hasn’t seen any “exceptional performances” from the pair of all-rounders, and that what the team needed was just the right combination. Opening batsman Chris Gayle said recently that Bravo and Pollard were “victimized” in their exclusion, citing the debacle in India in October. But Lloyd says that’s far from the truth. West Indies Cricket Board President Dave Cameron also denies victimization, saying the selections were based on merit alone. Meanwhile in South Africa, the Windies are seeking a 3-nil series whitewash at the 3rd and final T20 match in Durban.
