Sunil Narine rues missing out on World Cup

West Indies has recently announced a sturdy squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event. However, two notable absentees came in the form of all-rounder Kieron Pollard and spinner Sunil Narine.

While many expected the two cricketers to get back into the maroon jersey, authorities thought otherwise. Missing out on the mega-event hasn’t gone down well with Sunil Narine who recently expressed his disappointment. 

A major reason for the omission is a torn ligament in Narine’s right hand’s middle-finger which is expected to require surgery in some time.

Nevertheless, the 30-year old cricketer extended his gratitude to selectors who were considering him for the 10-team tournament which is scheduled to be played in England and Wales from May 30.

“I would have loved to play in the World Cup. I have missed International cricket and I’ve missed representing West Indies. It’s where my heart lies. Once I’m able to give the team my all, I’d like to be back there helping West Indies win games,” shared by the spin wizard who last represented West Indies in 2017.
