[www.inewsguyana.com] – After two decades of scoring runs even as the West Indies failed to produce wins, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has decided to exclude the side’s most stubborn batsman in Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

Even in the wake of President of the WICB, Dave Cameron’s comments of Chanderpaul deserving of a fitting send off, the move by the WICB seems to indicate that the veteran left hander career is coming to a close quickly if not finished all together.

In a release by the Board, Convenor of Selectors Clive Lloyd highlighted that Chanderpaul has been notified of the decision both verbally and in writing.

Lloyd further explained that, “this was a tough decision for the Selection Panel to make,” said Lloyd. “We recognise the significant contribution Chanderpaul has made to the West Indies teams over the last two decades, but we want to take this opportunity to introduce a number of young, promising players into the squad.”

Meanwhile the West Indies has announced a 12-member squad for a training camp in Barbados ahead of the International Home Test Series against Australia, starting June 3.

The training camp will take place from May 25-29 with sessions being staged at the Franklyn Stephenson Academy in the community of Bennetts in the central Barbados parish of St Thomas.

The squad for the first Test against the Australians will be finalised next Friday. It coincides with the final day of the tour match between the WICB President’s XI, a composite side of Test hopefuls, and the Aussies, starting next Wednesday at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua.

Training Squad: Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Veerasammy Permaul, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels and Jerome Taylor.

Team Management Unit: Phil Simmons (Head Coach), Sir Richie Richardson (Manager), Stuart Williams (Assistant Coach), Sir Curtly Ambrose (Bowling Consultant), Andre Coley (Assistant Coach), C.J. Clark (Physiotherapist), Hector Martinez Charles (Fitness Coordinator),

Richard Berridge (Video Analyst), Virgil Browne (Massage Therapist), Philip Spooner (Media Relations Manager).

  1. inews please run this a little longer. It would be interesting to see our fellow Guyanese comment on this.

  2. Scott you are talking about the West Indies cricket board buddy. Wake up. I am sure in your heart you would not treat Chandas like that. Nobody is complaining about his poor performance but the way they send him off. Don’t forget when the others turn their backs on West Indies he did not. He played with some school boys representing West Indies. Be fair to a great servant.

  3. This has nothing to do with breaking Lara record. They should let him know that we would give you a farewell test. Don’t matter if he breaks Lara record or not, that should not be a issue. But send him off like the other greats.I am sure everyone would love to watch him play his last international cricket match in the Caribbean. People don’t treat dogs like this.

  4. Clive Lloyd sold his soul and countryman out, and embark on strategy to become something we wanted all along – President of WICB. He will need all the votes and support he can get and is taking Guyana for granted. Forbes Burnham worked his magic for Lloyd, who should now assist another loyal servant of Wst Indies cricket.

  5. Ill advised and foolish.The selectors are too vain glorious even to recognise their
    folly.

  6. I agree that he should go,what has happened to some people,must chandra be left to break Lara’s record at the expence of the team,where is our loyalty.Some people are really blind,now they want to blame Simmons,,I like cricket and Chandra, but there comes a time that he has to go to make room for younger players as far as I am concerned he should he dies,but like everything else there will be positives and negatives and the show must go on.I am behind you Simmons and Lloyd continue to work hard and make the WI great again

  7. All Guyanese lets come together and boycott this upcoming series in what ever way we can. “No Chandra No cricket” the greatest problem the west Indies has faced in resent years are not the players but the whole dam WICB. I an I can assure you I will use everything that is available to me to see this series boycott. It is a crying shame to treat Mr. Shivnarine Chanderpaul this way at least allow him one more series and let him resign with his head held high.

  8. A SAD WAY TO TREAT SUCH A SERVANT OF WEST INDIES CRICKET, SO HE HAD AN OFF SEASON WHO DON’T. WITH THIS YOUNG AND INEXPERIENCE SIDE AUSTRALIA WILL RAVAGE THEM LIKE LAMBS NOW THAT THE TIGER IS NO THERE TO EVEN CHECK THEIR ADVANCE. ALL THE BEST TO SHIV IN THE FUTURE

  9. Chanderpaul should be allowed to play one test and then retire. He deserve a good send off.

  10. THIS IS THE CLIVE LLOYD THAT SEAN DEAVERS WAS TALKING ABOUT , IS THIS HOW YOU PUSH OUR HEROES ASIDE ? HAD BURNHAM DID THIS TO YOU , YOU WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN THE CRICKETING WORLD TO INSULT OUR HEROES

  11. West Indies cricket board especially Clive Lloyd is a disgrace I will not Sapport WI cricket every again

  12. same young and promising youths in the new pnc team..the chardrapalls will be pushed out in sports and politics now..the writing ison the pnc wall .

  13. these people will loose worst that ever now. best of luck shiv. I will encourage to retire now and left those ass losers n their own, they have no respect for you. I will stop follow west indies cricket from this day forward.
