Since T20 World Cup is just two months away and the selection debate has started among the participants. The West Indies Cricket, however, are concerned because of their poor outings in the recent T20Is series.

Their star players are unavailable for the national team. When India toured West Indies for a five-match T20I series, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, the two of West Indies’ power-hitter and all-rounder didn’t take part. But the two have taken part in England’s domestic league The Hundred.

Before the start of the three-match T20I series against New Zealand, West Indies chief selector Desmond Haynes and head coach Phil Simmons have spoken to the media where they expressed their dissapointment about how their players are not devoted towards their national team but are playing the league matches.

Haynes said, “I will love everyone to play for West Indies. I would love to make sure that all the guys make themselves available to play. But you must realise that the guys have options now, and if guys are choosing other franchises in front of West Indies, then we have to pick from who is available to us.” It certainly was clear that Russell and Sunil Narine are being talked off. Russell will also take part in UAE’s IT20, a new league, which will commence from January next year. “From what I have gathered, I think he is unavailable because he hasn’t made himself available,” Haynes directly talked about Russell.

On the situation, Simmons commented, “It hurts. There’s no other way to put it. But what can you do? I don’t think that I should be begging people to play for their countries. I think if you want to represent West Indies, you will make yourself available.

Eight teams have qualified so far for the Super 12 of the T20 World Cup and West Indies is not a part of it. If they get the first or second place while playing the Qualifiers, which will take place before Super 12 stage, then they’ll get a chance to play in the tournament.
