West Indies Batsman Sent Home After SLEDGING Team Chairman On Twitter
West Indies batsman Darren Bravo has been removed from his team's tri-series against Pakistan and Zimbabwe this month following a swing at his team's chairman on Twitter.
Bravo, one of the rocks in the struggling West Indian side, posted this on Twitter a couple of days ago after turning down a grade C contract.
Bravo was responding to an interview by Cameron on SportsMax TV, where he explained the low-ranking offer.
"It is explicit that if your averages are not above a certain level it tells you what contracts you get. It is very, very explicit," he said.
"His averages in the last two years have been declining, so what do you do? Reward poor performance or do you encourage him to get better?"
The 27-year-old, who averages 40 in Test cricket and scored more runs than any West Indian in their tour of Australia last summer, was then removed from the one-day series by West Indian Cricket Board chairman Dave Cameron after posting the tweet.
Bravo later posted a photo on Instagram confirming he had returned home.
