yes Gerry,that's exactly what they have done,and it's shameful.
It's an i'm in charge mentality with old guard meeting new and it does not gel at all.
I have massive respect for those Windies players that played in the 70's and 80's and became the world's best side and earned very little money but the game has moved on so quick big money is available to these players.

There's far too much politics and in fighting at all levels of sport. It's just a shame that a number of the better entertainers wouldn't be at the World Cup due to these reasons.

What are the chances that Lloyd even had a say in decision, Having seen how things work I suspect he might not be entirely or at all responsible but has to go out and face the questions while people who really wanted this to happen sit in the back ground with a smug grin on their faces...Pollard I could understand but Bravo is a bit hard to accept if dropped on merit only.

You have to understand that all the islands in the west indies are separate countries. It's like the EU selecting a team, there will always be favouritism and selection issues. But in this case it's just because of that India tour pull out.
Can't understand dropping pollard and bravo for not performing when the likes of Ramdin, Simmons and Russell have done a lot worse.

Sarwan's been pretty vocal: https://twitter.com/ronniesarwan
He was also mistreated by the board (think it was Coach Gibson).

Interesting views on why kirk Edwards was dropped!
