Dwayne Bravo attacks West Indies selector Desmond Haynes after Darren was ruled out of the ODI matches in England – LSB

“When will BS [sic] Stop?! “I wasn’t surprised my brother wasn’t selected, but with the recent changes in WI cricket administration, I’m holding out some hope for the best,” Dwayne posted on Instagram. “This is unacceptable, I can just” It doesn’t make any sense! So here are my burning questions: What are the criteria for selecting the West Indies team? Surely, it can’t be based solely on performance?”

Darren was the top scorer in the 2023 Super50 Cup that concluded earlier this month and led Trinidad and Tobago to the title. He scored 416 runs in the competition at an average of 83.20 and a strike rate of 92.03, batting at number three, and was one of two players to score more than 400 runs in the competition. Bravo was also among the top run-scorers for Trinidad and Tobago last season in the 50-over competition with 240 runs at an average of 48 and a strike rate of 76.92.

Haynes: Hayden Walsh was very close to being selected

After mediocre outings in ODIs against India at home and Pakistan away as well as T20Is against New Zealand at home last year, leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr was left out of the West Indies squad and was not selected for the T20 World Cup in Australia. Ahead of CPL 2023, he moved from Barbados Royals to Jamaica Tallawahs, but played only two matches.

After being dropped last year, Haynes said he asked him to take a look at his bowling shots in order to work on his flaws.

“Last season I was the first to go to Hayden when he lost his confidence and suggested that he bring a camera to watch him bowl,” Haynes said. “I thought at the time he wasn’t playing well and needed some help from outside just to get a look in him.

“This year I can tell you I was very impressed with the way the ball came off Hayden in this contest. We even put a proposal to the West Indies Cricket Board that Hayden would be in the last 16 and he would be in Antigua for the camp.”

Walsh returned to form with both bat and ball in the Super50 Cup where he took 20 wickets – the most in the tournament with Sunil Narine – and scored 222 runs with two fifties and a strike rate of 100.45. Against the West Indies Academy, he came out with the Leeward Islands at 157 for 6 and scored an unbeaten 60 off 55 to take them to 239. He then took five wickets to help his side win by 66 runs.
His fifty came in a similarly difficult situation in the semi-final against Barbados. Walsh scored 57 off just 45 to help the Leeward Islands recover from 179 for 6 to 290.

“We were very impressed with Hayden,” Haynes said. “He used to be a two-dimensional player. He batted very well for the Leeward Islands, came on at some crucial times and gave the Leeward Islands a really good partnership and got some good runs. We were very impressed with his batting as well.”

“Hayden was very close to being selected, and I’m glad he’s got his form back. He’s playing well and will always be in our plans.”

Haynes also said he was told that Jason Holder is “only involved in T20s and Tests” and is not available for ODIs.
