Cricket West Indies (CWI) have today confirmed that batsman Darren Bravo is availablewith immediate effect to play in allforms of cricket, following his apology to CWIand the President, Dave Cameron.
President Cameron s“In early November 2016, gave an interview to SportsMax TV during which I discussed playerretainer contractsand the grades of contractthat had been awarded to certain players. Inthe course of the interview I stated that Darren Bravo had previously been on an ‘A’ contract, which I have since been advised is not correct. I apologize for the misstatement, and wish to assure Mr. Bravo that there was no insult or offenseintended towards him. Darren is asenior cricketer who has been a valuable part of the WINDIES set up for a long time,and I would hope to see hisgame continue to progress and mature, at both regional and international level.”
Darren Bravo issued the following statement: “On the 11th day of November 2016, after viewing statements madeaboutme by Mr. Dave Cameron, President ofthe Cricket West Indies, ona television sports programme, I tweeted aresponse which referred to the President which was, in retrospect, inappropriate. AsI have always tried to uphold the best traditions of West Indies Cricket and its players, I now therefore wish to withdraw thecomment made on my Twitter account and apologize to the President of CWI and to all WINDIES fans.
I look forward to continuing to play a positive role in both the West Indies’ senior men’s team and regional cricket, as well as helpingto grow and develop cricket in the region at all levels.”
