Three West Indies Players Drop Out of Tour Against England
Three West Indies players have reportedly refused to travel with the team to England, where the team is set to take on the hosts for a Test series starting from next month.
The three players involved are Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul and Darren Bravo.
So far Cricket West Indies has not revealed the reason, why these players chose not to participate in the tour.
CWI STATED WHY THREE PLAYERS REFUSED TO TRAVEL:
Commenting on the issue, CWI stated that “the board respects the choice of these players and that the decision of these players to not be a part of the team, will not affect their future prospects, with respect to selection in the national side”.
CWI also announced a 14 man side for the tour, this squad also includes reserve players, who will travel and train with the team.
Two of the latest additions into the West Indies squad include Nkrumah Bonner, who is a middle-order batsman, and Chemar Holder who is a fast bowler.
Holder has been excellent in domestic cricket and comes into the series as the leading wicket-taker in the national championship.
Bonner too has been leading the run charts in the 2020 West Indies Championship, both these players have been rewarded for their efforts in domestic cricket.
