West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard says serious discussions needs to take place to help solve the fiasco currently facing regional cricket.

Since the West Indies walked off their tour of India in 2014, over a salary dispute, there has been an ongoing battle between the players and Cricket West Indies (CWI).

The battle continued recently after Pollard, Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo and Andre Russell decided to accept contracts to play in the current Pakistan Super League.

As a result, they will not feature for West Indies in the World Cup qualifiers which take place simultaneously.

CWI president Dave Cameron said Narine, Pollard and Bravo may not play for West Indies after not accepting the offer to play for West Indies in the World Cup qualifiers.

Pollard speaking on SportsMax zone said he still wants to play for West Indies but he is not happy with how Cameron is running CWI,

He said the CWI president wants to get rid of all the players and not seek proper dialogue.

“He just wants to get rid of everybody and this is not how you run an organizati­on,” Pollard said.

“We need discussions, we need to sit around a table. You need to accept where you have gone wrong as a board, as a player, as a Caribbean entity we need to accept where we have gone wrong,” he added.
