ICC World T20: BCCI gives us more support than WICB, says Dwayne Bravo

first_imgDwayne Bravo also joined team-mates Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle in criticising the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and said the Indian cricket board has done more for them. (Marlon Samuels takes a dig at Shane Warne after steering West Indies to second title )”The country’s cricket is not in right hands. We have not got a telephone call from any of the WICB officials or directors. That’s not a good thing. We know that they did not want or believe that we could win this tournament. It was basically us against them. Even the BCCI does more for us,” Bravo told the Star Sports in a post-final interview.He also questioned the WICB for keeping players like him, Gayle and Russell out of the ODI squad.”If we look at the calendar, we don’t have anymore T20 matches this year. We are not picked for the ODIs. There’s a series that’s going to happen with South Africa but we will be playing in England (Natwest Blast) whereas we should have been playing for the West Indies. Look at the love we get over here. Even the BCCI does more for us than our board,” said Bravo.

Cricket is a way that unites people in the Caribbean,” Bravo also said.(with PTI inputs)last_img read more
