DateLine: 6th July 2006


Skipper Brian Lara on Sunday asserted that he might have to reconsider his position to lead the West Indian team. Lara revealed he was informed on the eve of the fourth and final Test that he had been made a member of the West Indies selection committee one month earlier.


I got an endorsement letter from the West Indies Cricket Board a couple days ago saying that I was a selector since May 28," he said. I definitely feel let down and I must tell you I know there is a meeting relating to a new selection panel coming up in a couple of weeks and depending on the selectors out there, I'll revisit my decision to captain the West Indies team, " the southpaw added.


Lara was appointed captain for a third time in April after Shivnarine Chanderpaul resigned from the post. He previously led West Indies between 1998 and 2000, and again between 2003 and 2005.
