Earlier it had emerged that the West Indies Cricket Board had decided to sack all the three captains from their respective positions- Dinesh Ramdin, the Test Captain, Dwayne Bravo, the ODI Captain, and Darren Sammy, the T20 skipper.
However, Dwayne Bravo has insisted that he will lead a full-strength West Indies team during their tour of South Africa next month despite suggestions emanating from the Caribbean that he would be one of the victims of a purge of the players involved in the decision to abandon the recent tour of India. Meanwhile earlier WICB had promised that the players would not be victimized, for all the events that unfolded in India.
Bravo was named on Wednesday in the official one-day team of the year selected by an International Cricket Council judging panel, and had told the media in Durban, where he is to play for the Dolphins in the new Ram Slam Twenty20 competition, that the dispute between the players and the West Indies Cricket Board is “all sorted out”.
But there has been no direct response yet to subsequent claims that a Barbados radio station has reported that Bravo, the one-day captain, would be sacked as well as his counterparts in Test and T20 cricket, Denesh Ramdin and Darren Sammy respectively.
When asked about the ongoing dispute Bravo said, “It’s all sorted out and the West Indies are going to be back playing again. As far as I know the best West Indies team will tour South Africa. Everyone is available as far as I know and we look forward to trying to give the South African boys a good run. It’s always going to be tough, but it’s good that all the matters are resolved now.”
