IND vs WI: There has been talk of a team split ahead of the West Indies’ tour of India. Many media reports have claimed that some members of the West Indies team are being harassed on purpose. Some voice notes about this issue have also gone viral, in which it was mentioned that there was a rift in the team. The West Indies Cricket Board and the team’s coach, on the other hand, have stated unequivocally that there is no division in the squad. All of this information is based on rumours.
All of these rumours, according to team coach Phil Simmons, are just rumours being spread to smear the team’s captain Pollard’s reputation. In order to make room for Rovman Powell in the West Indies squad, Oden Smith was dropped from the team. Following this, it became clear that there is a schism in the team, with some players being harassed on purpose. Smith is one of them as well.
The West Indies Cricket Board has clarified the situation.
The West Indies Cricket Board has already clarified the situation. The board has stated that there is no schism in the team. Between Captain Pollard and the rest of the players, there is no distinction. The reports of a team split are untrue, and these rumours are being spread to smear West Indies cricket.
What did the coach have to say?
Coach Phil Simmons of the West Indies stated that no one should be made a victim in this situation. You don’t go out of your way to bring someone down. You try to make players better people before you try to make them better cricketers. You want to assist the person who is standing next to you. Simmons made it clear that no one on the team is harassed, and that it will not be tolerated under his leadership.
The first two T20 Internationals of the five-match series were played by Smith. In the first T20, he only bowled one over and was not bowled in the second. He was then dismissed from the team. Rovman, according to Simmons, is a better choice for the third match. That is why he has been given the chance.
