FOLLOWING criticism of the West Indies team selected for the T20 World Cup over the past few weeks West Indies vice-captain Nicholas Pooran said players are placed in an uncomfortable position responding to questions about the squad. He is asking for positive energy leading up to the tournament which bowls off in the United Arab Emirates, on Sunday.

On Tuesday, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard was perturbed when asked about Bravo and Narine.

On Wednesday, Pooran was asked whether the players believe regional journalists are against them.

“To be honest you guys have your job to do and we have our job to do as well. If we flip the script a bit and we question you guys about your colleagues or whatever the case is it is an awkward position."

I tend to agree with Pooran here. Asking the players about who's selected isn't fair to them, save it for management, and besides it's kind of old news now. The 15 has been picked (and debated within the media and the fanbase), move on.

Pooran is correct. They all need to learn the phrase. "No comment "

We need to stop criticizing the selectors and players and instead, let's give them the support. I've seen all the teams selected for the T20 WC and no doubt we have one of the best T20 teams if not the best. I am sure every team out there will have to think hard when they know they have to play us. So let's stop the negativity man

Please stop moaning and groaning, it's unseemly. Concentrate on your cricket.

And, I don't want to hear that any failure to do well in the tournament can be attributed to criticism about the team selection.
