West Indies players seek board help, say WIPA not their agent
The West Indies players currently on tour of India say they no longer want to be any part of a Wavell Hinds-led West Indies Players Association (WIPA), and have asked the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to ‘urgently’ intervene in the impasse.
In a letter to WICB president Dave Cameron, the players once again expressed their lack of faith in Hinds’ leadership and reiterated their desire to return to the terms of the old Collective Bargaining Agreement/Memorandum of Understanding, reports CMC.
The WICB confirmed to CMC Sports it has received the letter. The players have accused Hinds, WIPA president and chief executive, of misleading them as it relates to the terms of the newly signed CBA/MOU. In a move that threatens to split the players union and derail an agreement Cameron recently described as ‘historic’, the Windies players said they had ‘collectively determined’ not to accept any contracts stemming from the agreement.
