In an interview with SUNSPORT, Lloyd said the selectors were in a predicament, having to abide by the rules of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) while still hoping to select the best available team.
“Once they play in the competition, fine. The point is they are still top-class cricketers and they should come and play in the tournaments because that is the board’s rule,” Lloyd said.
