HEADLINE: Bravo sidelined unless tweet goes, says Cameron

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron has made it clear that left-hander Darren Bravo will remained sidelined from selection until he removes the offensive tweet which resulted in him being sent home ahead of the Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe last November.

Speaking in a candid interview with Massy Insurances Line and Length Network, Cameron said the tweet – labelling him “a big idiot” – was the kind of behaviour CWI was not prepared to accept and that Bravo needed to face up to this reality.

“Let me make it very clear: What Darren Bravo has to do first and foremost is take down the tweet. Every day that tweet stays up, it is an infraction,” Cameron said.

“Secondly, he needs to accept that he’s done something wrong and then we can move forward from there.”

He added: “But we’ve decided as an organization – it came up at the board meeting – [that] we’ll put it to the disciplinary committee, let them have a look at it and determine if there is further action to be taken and how that will go. We’ll move it from there.”

Controversy erupted last November after CWI announced the 28-year-old Bravo had declined a central contract for the period up to September 30, 2017.

It emerged subsequently that Bravo, one of the most experienced members of the Test squad, had rejected the offer of a Grade C contract, a downgrade from his previous contract.

Defending the move in a TV interview, Cameron stirred further controversy by saying the Trinidadian’s performances had not merited an enhanced retainer.

It is plain to see that the Big Idiot Dave Cameron of WICB is the owner of this Comedy thing and is doing what he likes while he enjoys the fun doing so. At the same time the WEAK Leaders of the Caribbean (except for 2 leaders) remain silent with their tails between their legs.WI/Caribbean Cricket is DEAD as a HERRING and there is no way back in the near future
unless the Sleeping Caribbean Leaders Wake Up and Face up to their Folly.In meantime I do hope they(THE 11th Division CRICKET Team IN THE WORLD) dont come to the UK. If they do come they will end up jumping in the RIVER THAMES rather than returning to the Caribbean.
cry

The notation you posted will have lil B lawyers
in glee.
CWI gats a procedure to follow that is to take lil B to the disciplinary committee but suspends him before doing due diligence.Now they want to see if further action is necessary?

This bunch needs a lot of grey matter.

Lil Bravo's lawyer must be a happy man since hearing Cameron's edit about "taking down the tweet".

Why take down the tweet when CWI will have to pay Bravo for loss of earnings for every series until this matter is settled plus damages.

Take your time "Big Idiot"
