Not a single West Indies player has made it into the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Test or One-Day International (ODI) team-of-the-year for 2015.
Players from five nations comprise the Test side while those from seven nations make up the one-day side, but no players from the Caribbean have found favour with the selection panel headed by legendary former India spinner Anil Kumble.
West Indies languish at number eight in the ICC Test rankings and number nine in the ODI tables. Significantly also, there are no West Indies players in the top ten of either the Test or ODI player batting rankings.
Ironically, off-spinner Sunil Narine tops the ODI bowling rankings but was on Sunday banned from bowling by the ICC because of an illegal action.
