Cameron says it’s all up to Bravo

PORT OF SPAIN – West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron has remained vague on the future of embattled left-hander Darren Bravo, but says the ball is in the player’s court.

With the career of the Trinidadian up in the air following his sending home ahead of the tri-nations series in Zimbabwe last November, Cameron refused to be drawn definitively on the player’s future, saying only “the ball is in his court”.

“My understanding is that Mr Bravo has met with the executive of the WICB and the ball is in his court as to whenever he is willing to come back and play cricket,” Cameron said at a recent WICB town hall meeting.

Incensed by Cameron’s criticism of his “declining” form and “poor performances”, Bravo slammed the Jamaican administrator in a Twitter outburst, labelling him a “big idiot”.

The WICB promptly cancelled Bravo’s match/tour contract and sent him home from the tour but also gave him until 4 p.m. on November 11 to remove the offending tweet and issue an apology for his actions.

Failure to do so, the WICB said, would result “in further disciplinary action, including referral to the WICB disciplinary committee”.

Asked at the town hall meeting if he had received an apology from Bravo, Cameron again repeated: “The ball is in his court.” (CMC)
