ABC NEWS – Dwayne Bravo has launched an emotional attack on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), saying “too much politics is killing our cricket”.
Bravo was stripped of the side’s one-day international captaincy a year ago before being left out of the West Indies’ World Cup squad, despite being one of the best players in the region.
The snubbing came after the West Indies left India mid-tour due to contract issues.
Bravo has not played an ODI since, while he retired from Test cricket in January due to frustration over a lack of communication with selectors — he had not pulled on the whites for his country since 2010.
The all-rounder, who will represent the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League alongside fellow former Windies Test cricketer Chris Gayle, lamented the sorry state of affairs.
