Denesh Ramdin hints at exclusion from West Indies squad against India while venting anger at WICB

PTI, Jul, 07 2016

Port of Spain: West Indies wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin has lashed out at the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for apparently leaving him out of the squad for the upcoming Test series against India.

West Indies still hasn't publicly announced the squad for the four-Test series but Ramdin took to Twitter to let his fans know that he had been dumped from the squad and blamed new chairman of selectors Courtney Browne for the decision.

Ramdin had finished with scores of 59 and 62 in his last two innings during West Indies' tour of Australia last year and the former Test captain provided stats of his previous two innings in his tweets.

Directing his attack towards Browne, Ramdin tweeted.

In 2012, Ramdin had taken out a piece of paper reading "YEH VIV, TALK NAH" after scoring a century against England after Vivian Richards had been critical of him.

Ramdin had taken over wicket keeping duties from Courtney Browne in 2005. Since then he has played 74 matches and scored 2,898 run at an average of 25.87. He also captained the team briefly in 13 matches.

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