Bravo still committed to play for WI

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (CMC):All-rounder Dwayne Bravo says he is still committed to playing for the West Indies, but was forced to quit Test cricket because of the poor treatment meted out to him by selectors.Speaking ahead of his campaign in the Big Bash League for Melbourne Renegades, Bravo told media here that with little interest coming from selectors, he had turned his attention to the lucrative Twenty20 leagues across the globe.”Until earlier this year, I was still interested to play Test cricket, but I have yet to hear anything from any selector, what their plans are for me, what my position is,” Bravo lamented.”I just decided it’s time to move on with my life and try to channel my energy in different places. I would have loved the opportunity to play Test cricket again, but since being dropped back in 2010, I never got the chance and I just decided to call it a day.”He continued: “I’m not shutting down my opportunities to represent the West Indies. I still, 100 per cent, want to play for the West Indies in one-day internationals and T20s.”The 32-year-old played the last of his 40 Tests five years ago after scoring 2,200 runs at an average of 31 and taking 86 wickets at an average of nearly 40. Following this protracted absence from the side, Bravo announced his retirement from the longer format in January this year.Ousted as captainHe was appointed one-day captain in 2013, but axed a year and a half later after he helped lead the players’ fight against the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies Players’ Association, which resulted in the controversial abandoned tour of India.Bravo said many West Indies players felt more respected outside of the Caribbean and this was behind their decision to ply their trade in tournaments like the Big Bash.”I get frustrated at times, not only for myself, but for all the other cricketers – Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell. We all want to represent West Indies,” Bravo said.”But, sometimes, the way we have been treated over the years … why should we actually fight with West Indies’ cricket when the rest of the world opens their arms for us?”Yes, they pay us well, but at the same time, we never feel disrespect in any way when we play for those teams around the world. We feel loved. We feel well-respected. Do we get that type of treatment back in the region? No, we don’t.”With the ICC T20 World Cup slated to bowl off in March next year, Bravo said he was taking nothing for granted about his selection.”I would love to think that I would be good enough and have done enough to get selected for the T20 World Cup, but I’m not saying anything. I don’t know,” he mused.last_img read more

Sammy wants to seal semi-final spot by beating SA

first_imgCRICKET: ICC Twenty20 World Cup NAGPUR, India (AP) – West Indies captain Darren Sammy will be confidently aiming for a semi-final spot at the World Twenty20 when the 2012 champions take on South Africa in a Group 1 match today (9 a.m. Jamaica time). West Indies have recorded convincing victories against England and Sri Lanka on contrasting pitches in Mumbai and Bangalore and Sammy believes his side can maintain its momentum. Victory would assure West Indies of a place in the semi-finals, even before their fourth and last group game against Afghanistan on Sunday at the same venue. “We have six steps to the cup, we’ve taken two, tomorrow is about taking one more step toward our goal and that step is South Africa,” he said. “Hopefully we could entertain like we’ve been doing since the inception of T20 cricket and at the end of the day we’ll be celebrating a place in the semi-finals.” Mystery surrounds how the wicket will behave as it has been covered for the last two days under baking sun in Nagpur. If the wicket suits spinners like it did when New Zealand shocked hosts India in a low-scoring Group 2 opening match, Sammy has Samuel Badree and Sulieman Benn to pose challenges for the strong South Africa side. West Indies didn’t feel the absence of the destructive Chris Gayle against Sri Lanka after Andre Fletcher stepped up and made a rapid unbeaten 84 off 64 balls. Gayle, who scored a 47-ball century against England, couldn’t bat at Bangalore because of a hamstring injury he sustained while fielding, but he has regained fitness for today’s game. And Sammy hinted Fletcher could get the nod ahead of Johnson Charles as Gayle’s opening partner. “It’s a good headache to have whether we let Fletcher or Charles open the batting with Chris,” he said. “The good thing is Fletcher has played really well … we have a fair idea who will open tomorrow.” Despite the absence of their two key Twenty20 players Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine, West Indies twice successfully chased down the targets with ease. So much is the dominance of West Indies’ regular bowlers that Sammy and even Gayle are yet to bowl in the tournament. “That’s the beauty of our team,” Sammy said. “It’s not about egos and stuff like that, it’s about me as a captain doing what’s necessary at the time on the field for the best interest of the team.” South Africa lost to England before beating Afghanistan and are in a must-win situation as another defeat could put them in danger of making an early exit from the tournament. The Proteas scored over 200 runs against England and Afghanistan, but their bowlers went for plenty — especially in the first six overs of batting powerplay in both games at Mumbai. Joe Root’s epic 83-run knock helped England chase down World T20’s highest ever total of 230-8 while Afghanistan’s bulky opener Mohammad Shahzad whacked a rapid 41 to give South Africa an early scare. “As a team we’ve been possibly going at about 60-70 percent now for a while and I’m hoping that we’ll step up the gear when it comes to crunch time for us in the tournament,” said South Africa captain Faf du Plessis. “There’s a few mistakes we made, but I do think that bowling will be a little bit different in these conditions.” A hamstring injury to all-rounder JP Duminy during the Afghanistan match has also made South Africa consider bringing on Aaron Phangiso to supplement the legspin of Imran Tahir.last_img read more
