Antigua (West Indies), Mar.2 (ANI): The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the national selectors have once again decided against selecting former captain and opener Chris Gayle for the forthcoming one-day and Twenty20 series against Australia.
A 30-member squad was announced on Thursday without Gayle, who hasn't played for the West Indies since last year's World Cup because of a long-running dispute with the West Indies board.
The Sydney Morning Herald quoted the WICB, as saying that 17 contracted players, along with 13 others who are under consideration for selection, will participate in a two-week training camp in Barbados from March 1 to 12.
The 17 contracted players are: Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards, Shannon Gabriel, Nelon Pascal, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford and Devon Thomas.
The 13 additional players under consideration: Samuel Badree, Tino Best, Nkrumah Bonner, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Shane Dowrich, Danza Hyatt, Garey Mathurin, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Krishmar Santokie and Dwayne Smith.
The first one-dayer takes place at St Vincent on March 16. (ANI)
