CRICKET: St Vincent PM asks WICB to reserve decision in players axing
St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves has called on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to reverse its decision to axe three senior players, including former captain Dwayne Bravo, from the One Day International squad.
In a two-page letter to WICB President Dave Cameron and copied to regional leaders as well as the President of the West Indies Players Association, Wavell Hinds, the St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister said the WICB had given an undertaking that the players would not be victimised following the controversial tour of India earlier this year.
Gonsalves reminded Cameron of the meeting held in Trinidad and Tobago to resolve the issues surrounding the aborted tour of India and the solemn undertaking by the WICB that the selection of the teams for the imminent tour of South Africa would be done on merit from the available pool of players.
