Phil Simmons Wants to be The Middle Man

West Indies coach, Phil Simmons, says he’ll be the man standing between the senior team selection panel and his players.

Simmons has asked the selectors to inform him of any player who is dropped from the team, since he wants to be the person to convey the message.

In the past, the selectors were the ones who relayed this information.

Simmons, together with test captain Denesh Ramdin will join the other selectors to select the team to face Australia in June.

Under a new policy direction, Simmons says he wants to maintain a relationship with any player who no longer finds favor with the selectors.
