WICB close to solving pay dispute
WICB president Dave Cameron might have sounded defiant after the board meeting last week but it is being reported now that the members have forged an agreement to end the players’ pay dispute that led to the West Indies team’s abrupt pull-out from the India tour. It is learnt WICB and the West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) will now renegotiate the cricketers’ contracts, with the players now having a say in payment matters. Also, WIPA chief Wavell Hinds will continue to represent the players’ interests. Cameron, though, is still critical of the players’ behaviour, calling it irresponsible on his twitter handle. ‘They’ve doubted you. They’ve lied on you. They’ve done all they can do, but one thing they can’t do is stop you,’ he tweeted after the meeting.
