WICB thanks its players for showing professionalism

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has thanked and congratulated the Dwayne Bravo-led side for showing professionalism and their sterling performance in the first ODI against India in Kochi.

The touring West Indies team put behind an acrimonious pay dispute with their Board to spank number one ranked India by a huge margin of 124 runs in the first ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series at the Nehru Stadium in Kochi on Wednesday.

‘As is known, the match was under a cloud of possible disruption through withdrawal of player services, and the WICB, the BCCI and all our partners and stakeholders and especially cricket fans are no doubt delighted that a reasoned approach was taken in ensuring that the match was played,’ the WICB said in a statement.

‘West Indies fans and the WICB are equally pleased with the result which was achieved through an obvious total team effort.’
