Gayle, Chanderpaul and Sarwan dropped

West Indies have left out Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan, their three senior-most players, from the squad for the first two ODIs of the five-match series against Pakistan that begins on April 21. Dwayne Bravo, whose World Cup was cut short by a knee injury, returns to the squad and will serve as captain Darren Sammy's deputy, while Antigua-born legspinner Anthony Martin remains the only uncapped player in the list of 13.

Kieron Pollard will miss the five-match series to play for Mumbai Indians in the IPL, while Bravo, who, like Pollard, had opted out of a retainer contract with the West Indies Cricket Board, will skip the two-match Test series that follows the ODIs to join Chennai Super Kings.

The exclusion of Gayle, Chanderpaul and Sarwan following West Indies' quarter-final exit from the World Cup marks a significant step and underlines the selectors' intention to move on and start afresh with an emphasis on youth. "Consistent with the policy to expose young players, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Chris Gayle and Ramnaresh Sarwan were not selected," a West Indies Cricket Board release stated.

Gayle dropped?!?

...I understand looking for new blood, but this looks like self-punishment to me...

Unless they self destruct again, I like this new PAK approach rebuiling the team again for future.

This is the time to rebuilt with young players... if things goes as planned, this team will again be a very good team.

I like their coach, and I like their captains, and I like some of their young talents. I hope few will stick out as long term solution.

Only thing they need is some kind of stability in cricket board as well as in their country.

Pakistan beat the WI badly in the WC and if pakistan could gave defeated the mighty australa and ended their WC domination for the last 12 years, then I think beating the WI will be no challnge for them.

dont support pakistan anymore, but yeah, hope they whitewashes west indies! there is no reason they should not. u cant trust pakistan, but strength wise, this shudnt be a problem.

west indies cricket board is now claiming that gayle was not considered for the first 2 matches, but wud hav been considered for the other matches. (after Gayle had decided to take off to IPL to play for RCB after not getting selected) WICB is claiming that Gayle was in rehab from an injury!

ajib.

Zulqarnain Haider : The Saga. part N

Quote:
Former Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider is reportedly reconsidering his decision to return to Pakistan after receiving threatening phone calls.

Haider told Geo Television on Thursday that an anonymous caller from Pakistan threatened him, saying: "you are coming back despite being told not to come, you are responsible for the consequences." Haider reportedly informed Scotland Yard about the calls.

both Pak & WI are surrounded by several problems but they still manage to win matches whereas we are sticking almost to the same team but still don't win that often.

Preview: West Indies v Pakistan, 1st ODI, Gros Islet, St Lucia by Daniel brettig

Teams square off with notable absentees

Match Facts
April 23, Gros Islet, St Lucia
Start time 0930am (1330 GMT)

The Big Picture

Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Kieron Pollard, Umar Gul, Younis Khan, Kamran Akmal. The list of players missing from West Indies' home ODI series against Pakistan, for all manner of reasons, is long. It's been a somewhat incongruent start to the tour for Pakistan, who have enjoyed the far smoother preparation, having planned to rest Gul and Younis ahead of the subsequent Test series, while also cutting ties with the iron-gloved Kamran. The only kind of disquiet was created by the captain Shahid Afridi's change of heart over making the trip to the Caribbean.

Gayle has of course been at the centre of a perfect storm surrounding his non-selection and subsequent flight to the IPL, where the in-demand Pollard had already chosen to play ahead of national duties. Dwayne Bravo will join them when the Test matches start, painting an altogether unhealthy picture of West Indies unity, or lack thereof.

However, a strong victory in the opening Twenty20 match suggested that Darren Sammy's side is not entirely without hope, and will fancy their chances of overturning an ugly World Cup quarter-final loss to Pakistan in Mirpur, 31 days ago. Notable too is the return of Marlon Samuels for his first ODI since being banned for inappropriate dealings with an illegal bookmaker. It is nearly a year since Samuels became eligible to return.

Form guide

(most recent first)

West Indies WWLLL

Pakistan LWWWL

Watch out for...

Lendl Simmons showed plenty of vim at the top of the order for West Indies in the Twenty20 prelude to this match, and will need to keep that up in the absence of Gayle. The circumstances of Gayle's departure indicate that he might not be back, so Simmons has the chance to make the opening spot his own.

Umar Akmal will also be hoping to raise his game in this series. A joy to behold at the batting crease, Umar must continue to grow and mature in the knowledge that the likes of Misbah-ul-Haq and the absent Younis are ageing all the time.

Team news

West Indies expressed the desire to try a younger side against Pakistan in this series, but their manner of doing so caused all kinds of ructions surrounding the future of Gayle and Sarwan. Samuels, older and wiser, is back in the team, while Simmons will have the task of replacing Gayle at the top of the order. Pakistan have also plumped for youth, though in the case of Younis and Gul theirs is only a temporary absence. Hammad Azam is the man charged with replacing Abdul Razzaq as the allrounder.

West Indies (possible)
: 1 Devon Smith, 2 Lendl Simmons, 3 Darren Bravo, 4 Marlon Samuels, 5 Kirk Edwards, 6 Dwayne Bravo, 7 Carlton Baugh (wk), 8 Darren Sammy (capt), 9 Devendra Bishoo, 10 Kemar Roach, 11 Ravi Rampaul

Pakistan (possible): 1 Taufeeq Umar, 2 Mohammad Hafeez, 3 Asad Shafiq, 4 Misbah-ul-Haq, 5 Umar Akmal, 6 Hammad Azam, 7 Mohammad Salman (wk), 8 Shahid Afridi (capt), 9 Wahab Riaz, 10 Tanvir Ahmed, 11 Saeed Ajmal.

Pitch and conditions

The St Lucia surface lost pace noticeably over the course of the Twenty20 match that opened the tour, meaning more of the same can be expected in the first ODI - Ajmal and Bishoo take note.

Stats and trivia

* West Indies have not beaten Pakistan in a bilateral ODI series since a 2-0 success in Pakistan over three matches in November 1991 - the second match was tied.

* Pakistan won the only two matches between the two nations to be played in St Lucia, by 40 and 22 runs during the 2005 series won 3-0 by the visitors.

* West Indies' short-term batting coach Desmond Haynes has made the most runs in limited-overs matches between the two countries, racking up 2390 at 41.92 in 65 matches, though his strike-rate of 60.86 now appears a little dated.

* Samuels' last ODI appearance was also in St Lucia, against Sri Lanka in April 2008. He finished 3 not out as the match was wiped out by rain.

Quotes

"I have served West Indies for many years, but I was disrespected a lot, and I have been playing under a lot of pressure. I can't sleep properly. I need to get this off my chest. I want everybody to print what I said, I want to clear the air and I want them to ease up. WICB… back up offa my back."
Chris Gayle is the most high-profile absentee from the series, for the most high-profile reasons, too.

"I had decided to skip the tour because I wanted to take a break from the game, but some former players and my family and friends told me to change my decision at this crucial time for Pakistan cricket."
Shahid Afridi might have been missing too if not for second thoughts.
