Dar­ren Bravo tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against WICB

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): WEST INDIES bats­man Dar­ren Bravo is tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) af­ter he was dropped from the squad be­fore the re­cently con­cluded TriNa­tions one-day se­ries in Zim­babwe. Bravo is claim­ing un­law­ful dis­missal af­ter he was sent home by the on-tour man­age­ment com­mit­tee for blast­ing WICB pres­i­dent Dave Cameron in a row over con­tracts. The Guardian news­pa­per is re­port­ing that Bravo’s lawyer has sent a pre­ac­tion pro­to­col let­ter to the WICB last week, which has been re­ceived by the board.

Bravo, the most con­sis­tent bats­man for the Caribbean side in the long­est for­mat, was over­looked for the top tier and of­fered a Grade C con­tract.

The row be­tween the stylish Trinida­dian bats­man and Cameron erupted af­ter Cameron gave an ex­pla­na­tion for their of­fer, stat­ing that Bravo’s per­for­mances were not con­sis­tent enough to merit a higher grade of pay.

Bravo lashed out at Cameron on Twit­ter, ac­cus­ing him and the board of­fi­cials of never of­fer­ing him a Grade A con­tract in the first place de­spite his con­sis­tency.
