"We are going to have 15 at the WICB level - which I will call the international team, while we will have 90 players at the regional franchise level - 15 players among the six teams.

Windies v Bangladesh

ICC Press release


West Indies player Darren Bravo has been found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the fourth and final day’s play in the second Test against Bangladesh in St. Lucia on Tuesday.

Bravo was found to have breached Article 2.1.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “…Where the facts of the alleged incident are not adequately or clearly covered by any of the above offences, conduct that either : (a) is contrary to the spirit of the game; or (b) brings the game into disrepute.”

Bravo had been warned on several occasions not to approach and verbally offend the opposition batsmen and repeatedly failed to heed the umpires’ instructions. Bravo disputed the offence and a formal hearing was then conducted by ICC Match Referee Roshan Mahanama, with the charge having initially been brought by on-field umpires Stephen Davis, Richard Illingworth, Third Umpire Marais Erasmus and Fourth Umpire Peter Nero. Mr Mahanama found the player guilty and issued a fine of 30 per cent of his match fee.  
Following the hearing, ICC Match Referee Mahanama said: “The umpires felt that the player’s behaviour brought the game into disrepute and he was reminded of his responsibilities to extend respect at all times to both his opponent and to match officials.”

Ruthless Windies humiliate Bangladesh to win series 2-0

Wed, Sep 17, '14

 

Windies v Bangladesh

GROS ISLET, St Lucia (CMC) – A century from Shiv Chanderpaul, Sulieman Benn’s five-wicket haul and three wickets from Jerome Taylor helped, as West Indies ran rings around Bangladesh to win by 296 runs in the second Test and claim a two-nil series win yesterday.Chasing an insurmountable 488 to win, Bangladesh collapsed from 158 for three to 188 all-out in the final session of the fourth day of the five-day match as West Indies produced another commanding performance.
Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque staged an amazing fightback for the tourists by adding 110 runs for the third wicket after coming together at 48 for two.
In only their second hundred-partnership of the series opener Iqbal played patiently to reach a top score of 64 while Haque contributed 56.
But when Benn broke the partnership by removing Iqbal the rampaging Caribbean boys pressed home the advantage to seal a lopsided victory in the 500th Test of their history.
