Gayle slams selectors over Bravo, Pollard omissions


After hammering a match-winning 90 that helped West Indies win the Twenty20 series against South Africa, Chris Gayle launched a scathing attack on the West Indies Cricket Board and the Clive Lloyd-led selection panel for dropping the senior pair of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard from the ODI series and the World Cup.


Repeatedly labelling the move as "ridiculous", Gayle felt it was a case of "victimisation" against the two Trinidadian allrounders.


On Saturday, the WICB announced the 15-man World Cup squad to be led by Jason Holder with Marlon Samuels as vice-captain.
