Matthews, who was appointed as West Indies captain in June, said she was as surprised as anyone by Dottin's shock announcement via Twitter on Monday, citing concerns over the team environment.

Will someone ask her, as leader, was she aware that someone in the ranks was so unhappy, frustrated, and unable to function in the current environment???

Let's just leave the young lady to get her captaincy feet at least wet before being distracted be controversies. She is yet to captain even 1 match or have a WI dressing room or meeting. How the he'll then can she know a damn about disaffection or atmosphere???

Why should she be asked about that and if so what do you expect her to say? The burden of proof is not on her. She didn't claim anything

What is it with the aversion to good governance and accountability or even at least average management?

A leader has a resignation and she shouldn’t be concerned? After a damning assessment by a bonafide WI women’s legend? She should be “left alone” etc.? shock
