New Delhi: West Indies' Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy says his decision to quit Test cricket came after the selectors conveyed to him that they didn't have any plans for him as player or captain in the team.
Sammy retired from Tests on Friday evening, and the announcement came just hours after the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) appointed wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin as the captain of the Test side for the upcoming three-Test home series against New Zealand beginning on June 8. (Sammy Quits)
"It was told to me that the selectors had no plans for me in Tests. They are moving in a new direction and I was no longer needed as captain or player," Sammy told IANS over phone in the wake of his announcing his retirement from Tests.
