Former cricketers air views on Johnson’s omission from New Zealand training squad
By Delvon Mc Ewan
The omission of national four-day captain Leon Johnson from the list of 20 players selected for the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) training camp for the upcoming test series against New Zealand raises concerns within the cricketing fraternities in Guyana.
Johnson, who is currently involved in a preparatory training camp at the High Performance Centre (HPC) in Barbados for West Indies “A” team upcoming series against Bangladesh “A” continues to be overlooked by the selectors after averaging 46.21 during the last 14 months of first-class cricket. During this period, Johnson played 14 first-class matches, batted 24 innings, had one not out, scored 1063 runs with two centuries and six half centuries for a batting average of 46.21.
