BCCI gives us more support than WICB, says Bravo

first_imgKolkata, Apr 3 (PTI) After skipper Darren Sammy, it was the turn of premier all-rounder Dwayne Bravo to launch a tirade on his countrys cricket board stating that “even BCCI does more” for them. “The countrys cricket is not in right hands. We have not got a telephone call from any of the WICB officials or directors. Thats 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 as to how pkayers like him, Gayle and Russell are being kept out of the West Indies ODI side. “If we look at the calender, we dont have anymore T20 matches this year. We are not picked for the ODIs. Theres a series thats 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. “But its nice that the CARICOM people are coming together. Cricket is a way that unites people in the Caribbean,” concluded Bravo. PTI KHS KHSlast_img read more
