West Indies players left out of ICC team of the year

Not one West Indies player has made it into the International Cricket Council’s Test or One-Day International 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.

There are no West Indies players in the top ten of either the Test or ODI player batting rankings.

Discarded veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul is the highest-ranked West Indies Test batsman at 14th while fast bowler Kemar Roach lies 15th in the bowling rankings.

In ODIs, West Indies batsmen do not feature inside the top 30 with stroke-maker Marlon Samuels the highest ranked at 33rd.
