Kingston, Jamaica:

They might be at loggerheads with the West Indies Cricket Board, but explosive batsman Chris Gayle and pacer Jerome Taylor could still make it to the national squad for the upcoming ODI series against India.

The two players' decision to compete in the IPL after recovering from injuries had not gone down well with the WICB.

The duo ended up offending the Board all the more by claiming that the WICB did not check on their injuries while they were recovering.

But despite the controversy, WICB CEO Ernest Hilaire said it was up to the selectors to pick the best squad for the series starting June 4.

"I think at the end of the day the selectors will sit and select the players they feel will best represent the West Indies and within the selection policy," Hilaire told the 'Trinidad and Tobago Express'.
