HEADLINE: Dwayne Bravo believes West Indies selectors erred by overlooking Marlon Samuels

 
CaribbeanCricket.com 2019-05-27 15:14:00 

The 38-year-old Samuels, a veteran of 207 one-day internationals, was a notable omission when the Robert haynes-led selection panel announced their 15-man squad for the May 30 to July 14 showpiece last month.

More surprisingly, Samuels was not included on the 10-man reserve list announced last week.

Samuels helped West Indies secure their World Cup berth last march in Zimbabwe, scoring 231 runs an average of 33, as the Caribbean reached the finals of the qualifying tournament.

This has more to do with Samuels than it's about Bravo.

Bravo is living in the past, he is not looking at the bigger picture, there comes a time when people have to move on.

Serves Samuels right.

He was the one who chose to stay home and play for the proven ungrateful West Indies while his colleagues were off self benefiting from the world cricket leagues wherever.

Sammy was de Board favorite son and poster child during Hunte and Hilaire regime.

When Gayle first came back into the team during Sammy’s captaincy, Sammy’s first words were to utter words to the effect that he hopes Gayle doesn’t upset the chemistry the team has achieved under his leadership.

With the advent of Cameron’s Presidency, Sammy suddenly find “religion” and siding with the same players that were ostracized under the Hunte & Hilaire regime.

The point is, things change, players change, and they don’t appear to tote feelings....certainly not as much as some fans do

Certain posters on this forum are unable to think this far out of the box.

They just don't get it. Carl0002 and Nick2020 comes to mind.

Samuels deserves to be in the squad, he won two WC for WI and without his efforts there would be no WI team at the current WC.

That should not be the basis for selection.

Clive Lloyd won us two trophies, should be selected

Which teams have been falling over to obtain Samuel's services in de last 3 years?

I think there was a fitness issue at play. He has not played any meaningful cricket since December last year and managed 134 runs in 134 runs in 8 innings

Dont expect to get an answer to your logical question anytime soon. Samuels was available to help the Windies qualify because he had no other option. Am one of the biggest Marlon fan out there, but the fact remain that ever since he got hit, he hangs back in the crease and is afraid to come on the front foot. Marlon in his prime would have been an automatic pick in this weak batting linup. The Marlon of recent times is way past his sell date and is not worthy of a pick.

You are off topic. Why is it so difficult for you to understand the genesis of the argument.

Let me repost a shorter version of Drapsey's post which I hope will cause you to think this time.
Serves Samuels right.

Hope you get it.
