Jamaican Marlon Samuels has strongly disagreed with the statement from West Indies One-Day International captain Dwayne Bravo that he had given consent to abandoning the tour of India.

Bravo hit back at Samuels saying his teammate was an interested party and spoke vigorously during the meetings he attended.

Samuels said he wanted to focus on finishing the India tour before raising any objections concerning the contract and memorandum of understanding signed between the West Indies Players Association (WIPA) and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

Samuels also pointed out that all three parties - players, WICB and WIPA - had handled the situation inappropriately.

However, he blasted Wavell Hinds, saying that the WIPA president and CEO was the real reason the situation became messed up.

The India tour was abandoned after the fourth One-Day International in Dharamsala.

Players abandoned the tour over the terms and conditions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, signed recently between the WICB and WIPA.

The Players argued it results in a drastic reduction in their earnings and have called for a return to the old Collective Bargaining Agreement.
