CRICKET: Lara questions selectors' decision to ignore Bravo, Narine

Former West Indies Captain Brian Lara has questioned the decision by selectors to ignore Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine for the Test leg of West Indies' tour of India.

Lara has described Bravo as having equal or stronger credentials as an all rounder than captain Darren Sammy, who made only 25 runs in the series and went wicketless.

The cricket legend says he is also baffled at Narine’s omission describing him as the best spinner in Caribbean first-class cricket.

Writing in his column for the Times of India, Lara said Sammy’s confidence was shattered.

Lara further says Sammy looked lost on the field and his personal display especially with the bat, was one even he would like to forget.

Lara also says the selectors had benched the wrong people and the consequences badly hurt the team.

West Indies crashed to innings defeat inside three days in their two test matches against India.

The former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd has blamed the losses on poor batting, weak bowling and a heavy diet of Twenty20 cricket.
