Senior West Indies cricketers Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Darren Sammy have lashed out at the country’s selectors for ignoring them for next month’s ODI tri-series involving Australia and South Africa.

The trio was part of the World T20-winning team and the exclusion from the ODI squad did not go down well with them. The players who returned to the side are Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine.

Bravo, who is currently playing for Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League (IPL), took to Twitter to express his displeasure at the selectors’ logic.

In a series of tweets, Gayle and Sammy also slammed the selectors.

“@KieronPollard55 & #SunilNarine selected for WI Tri-Series. How is that possible @westindies?” asked Gayle on Twitter.

“WICB stop Sunil from playing super 50 and now they pick him. If @KieronPollard55 was fit he would’ve play the B Bash just like the rest of us!!” the southpaw said in another post.

Sammy, mentioning Pollard in his tweet, wondered how the all-rounder made a comeback.

“@KieronPollard55 great to see u back in odi team but tell me how did u qualify for selection having not played the super50 or ODI since 2014,” Sammy wrote.
