Khan slams Ramdin axing


Share post:

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Former West Indies team manager Omar Khan has lashed out at regional selectors over their axing of wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin.
Khan, who quit the West Indies Cricket Board post in April, said it was clear Ramdin was facing some challenges but argued that discarding him was not the way to go.
The 25-year-old Trinidadian was overlooked for the tour of Sri Lanka starting next month where West Indies are scheduled to play three Tests and five One-Day Internationals.
“It is unfortunate that Ramdin has been dropped from the West Indies team at this point,” said Khan.
“While I agree that he has not been consistent with the bat, the Board has done nothing to help him. He is a pretty young player. How can the Board discard him like that?”
Ramdin has played 42 Tests and 81 ODIs but has struggled over the last year, both with the bat and gloves.
He has been replaced in the Windies squad by Jamaica Carlton Baugh Jr, with 20-year-old Leeward Islands gloveman Devon Thomas also included. (CMC)
