Collins decision could end Test career

Pedro Collins has withdrawn from the West Indies squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka next week after opting to fulfil his contract with Surrey.

Collins, the left-arm seamer, had the chance to return to the international fold after two years out but said his Surrey deal meant he had to decline the offer and may well signal the end of his international career.

“Unfortunately, due to prior contractual commitments I have no alternative but to decline your kind invitation at this time,” Collins said in a letter sent to the West Indies board and posted on the West Indies Players’ Association website. “I would like to take the opportunity to wish my colleagues best of luck for the upcoming series as I have every confidence they would make us all proud. Thank you in advance for your understanding.”

Collins joined Surrey as a Kolpak player on a two-year deal and it now appears he has removed any chance of extending his West Indies career. He has played 32 Tests and 30 ODIs.
