Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy is eager to play for the regional tram in the upcoming Limited Overs (50) against Pakistan in the Caribbean.

However, Sammy is leaving that decision to the West Indies selectors.

Sammy was left out the 13-man squad in the Twenty20 International against Pakistan which was played in Barbados recently. Pakistan won the four-match Twenty20 series.

The St. Lucian has not played for West Indies since their stunning victory over England in the final of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 World Cup last April, but he has indicated he would like to wear the burgundy colors again.

He said he has retired from Test cricket but not from the Limited Overs. “I ‘m available for selection,” he said.

Sammy is hoping that the recent appointments of new Executive Officer Johnny Grave, new Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams would cool the strained relations between the West Indies Cricket Board and several senior players over a controversial selection policy, as well as terms and conditions of agreement.
