Cricket West Indies (CWI) wants to meet with Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and Darren Bravo to ascertain their availability for future tours.

According to an article in the Express newspapers last week, CWI chief executive officer Johnny Grave explained that the four Trinidad and Tobago players were not invited to be part of the squad for the Hurricane Relief T20 against a World X1 in London in May.

Grave said the players’ West Indies careers are in their own hands and wants to meet with them to discuss precisely that.

Following the recently-held naming of the squad in January for the ICC World Cup Qualifier, CWI president Dave Cameron was reported as telling TVJ Sports in Jamaica that Pollard, Narine and Bravo — who all opted out of selection — that the board in its wisdom feels that after the World Cup — the qualifiers — “we will probably not invite those players to be a part of Cricket West Indies going forward.”
