West Indies head coach Phil Simmons was granted permission to attend his father-in-law’s funeral in England last Friday. That’s the word from Cricket West Indies CEO Johnny Grave, who was responding to queries from Sportsmax.TV.

Simmons has been self-isolating since and will only be permitted to re-join the team on Thursday, July 2, if he returns two negative Covid-19 tests.

“Yes, he left to go to his father-in-law's funeral on Friday and is now going through the re-entry process having had his whole exit and entry approved and managed by the medical teams,” Grave said.

Ragg: Sackable offence. Even if he was given permission then that personel who gave it needs to be dismissed too.

Get the facts bro.

Ok let's be objective and move the insularity spot out of this box
The coach in question, has he earned the right to take such liberties?
He is a coach not a manager that's a hands on job to a junior team trying to find their way into test cricket.

The likes of Alex Ferguson was there every single day with his troops until his dynasty was built then he took a view from his office and joined in the training and drills when he felt it was necessary.

Seeing you is part of the medical staff that set the protocol for the tour, and gave him and Root the time off to attend family birth and death.
Why bitch now?

If Bennet King did what Simmo done in his early stages of his coaching tenure, you would be talking from the other side of your mouth.

Dude I believe a Head coach should have his own team, and should be making all the decisions during play.
Bennett King, Phil, Otis are all the same to me.
This is a unique situation, one I have never witness before, Phil and Joe Root were in the same boat, one the health of his father in law, the other the birth of his child.
They were both given permission to attend.

Sir Alex Ferguson only ever missed three Man United games while he was manager.
One was so he could attend his son’s wedding.

One was for his brother’s wife’s funeral.

And the other was so he could scout David de Gea.

what did I seh? Sir Alex Ferguson earned that right to miss that game to attend a funeral the year was 2000. The man been managing Man Utd since 1985 and won everything in sight for the legendary club by then
If his brothers wife had died around 1987 when he was still finding his feet in the job and I must say he was struggling under the weight of that job, would he had then at such a delicate time, attended that funeral?
