Shortly after West Indian coach Phil Simmons complained about players prioritizing playing in T20 leagues over representing their country, star all-rounder Andre Russell took to Instagram to respond to his comments. “It hurts. There is no other way to say it. But what can you do? I don’t think I should beg people to play for their country. I think if you want to represent the West Indies, you make yourself available will ask,” Simmons was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. Russell took to Instagram to share a photo of a news article about Simmons’ comments and captioned: “I know this is coming, but I’m keeping quiet!!!”

Russell posted his caption with slap emojis at the beginning and angry ones at the end.

Russell has appeared in 67 T20Is and last represented the West Indies in the format in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

Players like Russell and Narine – who have not played for the Windies since 2019 – are part of various domestic leagues such as the Indian Premier League (IPL), Big Bash League and of course the Caribbean Premier League.


“Life has changed in the sense that people have the opportunity to go to different places and if they prefer that to the West Indies that’s exactly how it is,” Phil Simmons had said.

The West Indies are currently in the midst of a T20I series against New Zealand.
