Former West Indies opener, Lendl Simmons will not be playing Test cricket for the regional side.
According to the Trinidad and Tobago batsman, until issues with the remuneration for playing the longer format of the game is addressed, he will not be interested in a return to Tests.
"I didn't retire from four-day cricket, so I like Test cricket, I like playing the long format of the game but there are certain circumstances that brought me to the conclusion that I don't want to play any Test cricket again," Simmons had told Digicel SportsMax Zone recently.
According to Simmons, the rigours of the long format of the game should be enough to warrant better payment from the powers that be.
"What people have to take into consideration is Test cricket is not easy. It is five days of very hard cricket, it is testing cricket, and when you go out there you put your body on the line for five days," said Simmons.
