The decision by Cricket West Indies to relax its selection policy to allow players who do not play in domestic competitions to be eligible once again for Limited Overs tournaments was welcomed in most quarters, but senior batsman Marlon Samuels says the ruling should not have been implemented in the first place.

He says the senior players should not have been subjected to the ruling as it placed an unwanted restriction on them as well as the team, and the results bear out his thinking.

It was only on Thursday the Board kissed and made up with star batsman Darren Bravo who is eligible once again across all formats, and could feature in the upcoming England series next month.

Similarly, Nicholas Pooran, another rising star, had his suspension lifted and is cleared across all formats.

He opted to play in the Bangladeshi Professional League rather than honour his contract to play in the regional Professional Cricket League.

Without saying what has changed, both parties are said to have engaged in good faith discussions, which brought about the lifting of the sanctions.
