Sydney: Former Australia captain Michael Clarke believes the West Indies players should place more emphasis on playing international cricket rather than campaigning in the various domestic Twenty20 leagues around the world.
He was speaking amidst the raging debate surrounding the plethora of the West Indies players currently signed with franchises in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL), even as the Caribbean Test team faced off in a three-Test series against Australia here, CMC reported.
“I think international cricket has to be the priority. T20 tournaments are important and fantastic to watch but I think there’s nothing more special than representing your country,” said Clarke on Saturday, who quit international cricket earlier this year.
