Former WICB head Ernest Hillaire queries ‘other factors’ behind Sammy axing

Sammy-300x225JAMAICA OBSERVER – Controversial former West Indies Cricket Board CEO, Dr Ernest Hilaire, says he is shocked by the axing of Darren Sammy as Twenty20 captain and has questioned the rationale behind the decision.

St Lucian Hilaire, under whose tenure Sammy was appointed captain in all three formats, told the St Lucia Times he believed the 32-year-old all-rounder still had a valuable contribution to make to the regional side and raised the possibility of “other factors” being at the centre of the move by selectors.

“It is shocking,” said Hilaire, who quit the WICB four years ago.

“You would want to believe that there would be a transitional period before another captain is picked.

He added: “It is really a shock. Sometimes you wonder whether at the end of the day it is less about performance and more about other factors.”

  1. The WICB board is nothing short of disgusting....and Dave CAMERON IS JACKASSS.

  2. That's exactly the situation when you Hilaire sacked Sarwan, who by the way has been awarded almost 200,000 US. You tried it with Gayle too, but Portia S. Miller was having none of it. The persons on the Board have changed but it has not changed its policies neither its politics. It is really, really ironic and shocking that Hilaire has anything to say. At the end of the day is the players who suffer while people like Hilaire ride into the sunset with celebrity status and political aspirations.

  3. Helaire, I still waiting to hear what you have to say. You have said nothing. What are these factor?
