Dwayne Bravo says board needs shake up
Out-of-favour all-rounder Dwayne Bravo on Wednesday lamented the sorry state of West Indian cricket and said those running the game needed to take a long hard look at themselves.
Bravo was stripped of the one-day captaincy a year ago then left out of the West Indies’ World Cup squad after the team he skippered walked out of their tour of India last year in a row over contracts.
He has not been picked for one-dayers since and quit Test cricket this year after being ignored by selectors. In Australia to play for the Melbourne Renegades in the Twenty20 Big Bash League, Bravo said it was painful to see what had happened to the once-formidable West Indian team. “Times change and I think that is one of our problems, we tend to hold on too much to the past and not focus on the future. That has been our downfall,” he said.
