Barbadian cricketer Ashley Nurse has paid the price for below-par bowling performances in one-day internationals (ODI) this year which resulted in him being dropped from the starting 11 of the West Indies’ World Cup team.

Off-spinner Nurse and compatriots Miguel Cummins and Raymon Reifer were among seven players who have not been retained by Cricket West Indies (CWI) on central contracts for the period from July 1 to June 30, next year.

Others who have been dropped from the list are out-of-favour leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, opening batsman Kieran Powell and batsman Sunil Ambris, who was a late World Cup replacement for the injured all-rounder Andre Russell.

Nurse has taken 49 wickets in 54 ODIs at an average of 43.36 and an economy rate of 5.34 runs per over but only managed eight wickets in 14 ODIs this year after not bowling in three of those matches. He bowled in two of the three World Cup matches he played, returning figures of 5-0-31-0 versus Australia and 9-0-55-0 against New Zealand. (EZS)
