CROYDON sprinter James Dasaolu has been left out of Team England's 2014 Commonwealth Games squad. In the announcement made yesterday, the 26-year-old has been overlooked, even though he has made a recovery from a recent hamstring injury. Team England have decided to take the trio of Adam Gemili, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey and Richard Kilty to Glasgow. Dasaolu has also been overlooked for the 4x100m relay team as well, even though he has clocked a time of 9.91 seconds. Team leader Peter Stanley said: "James was certainly discussed, our selection process and criteria, we were looking at athletes with current form, running from January 1, 2014, up until June 2. "James hadn't competed unfortunately, during that period, over 100 metres. "So it didn't really leave us much room to nominate him, and he still hasn't competed yet, so it's the only decision we could have made. "He is coming back from injury; I understand he is in good form, but now he'll have more time to complete his training programme with his coach to be ready for the Europeans. "The Commonwealths are probably just a little bit too early for him I think. "This way he'll have (the) chance to compete, get some competitions under his belt, test himself and come to a peak at the correct time for him."
