    Samuels left out of West Indies squad

    The West Indies Cricket Board's decision to leave Marlon Samuels out of the squad which tours England soon seems baffling to many.

    To me, it is a potential indicator that there is trouble brewing for him. Remember that he is currently under investigation by the ACU for allegedly leaking match related information to a bookie. The ICC had confirmed that he could play at the World Cup. The fact that he has been dropped like a hot potato after a tournament where he made 216 runs, and averaged more than Gayle, seems to indicate that his batting was not the key consideration in him being dropped.

    There's obviously more to this than meets the eye!

    Are you sure it's not an act of revenge from beyond the cricketing grave by BC Lara? Perhaps he's cursed Samuels to forever wander the earth until he, Lara, returns.

    Maybe not. Samuels has been in and out of the Test team and wasn't in the Test team for the last Windies Test series in Pakistan. In fact, despite his obvious talent, he only averages less than 30 in Tests, so he really has himself to blame if he can't command a regular place in the Test team.
