Ramdin sacked from West Indies team, blames selection chief

The West Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Denesh Ramdin has lashed out the West Indies Cricket Board for apparently dropping him from the team ahead of the Test series against India.

Although the Cricket Board had not made an official statement announcing the squad for the four Test matches, Ramdin posted on Twitter about how he had been dumped and blamed the new chairman of selectors Courtney Browne for this decision.

In the West Indies tour of Australia last year, Ramdin had scores of 59 and 62 in his last two innings and made it a point to let this stat showcase in his tweets.

With two other tweets that were posted by Ramdin, the former Test captain directed his attack towards the chairman Browne:

Another incident when Ramdin was involved with a former cricketer was back in 2012, when he had held out a piece of paper on the pitch which read “YEH VIV, TALK NAH” after scoring a hundred against England. This gesture was outcome of the fact that Vivian Richards had made some critical remarks about him.

Ramdin became the first choice wicketkeeper in 2005 after taking over from Courtney Brown. From then until now he has played 74 matches scoring 2898 runs at an average of 25.87. He also had a captaincy stint with the team for a brief perios of 13 matches.

India is set to play four Tests against the West Indies, starting with the opening Test at North Sound, Antigua from July 21.
