Players seek cricket counsel
West Indies players who controversially abandoned the tour of India last week have retained legal counsel as they prepare to tackle the contentious Collective Bargaining Agreement signed by their union, WIPA.
But while several other players who did not tour India were also seeking legal advice on the issue, batsman Marlon Samuels has opted not to pursue this course of action with his teammates.
This was confirmed in a release on Friday by one-day captain Dwayne Bravo, who is also acting as a spokesman for the aggrieved players.
Samuels said earlier this week he was not supportive on the decision to abandon the tour and had hardly attended any of the players meetings on the troubled tour.
However, Bravo rebutted Samuels’ claims, contending the Jamaican right-hander was a vocal part of the meetings held. (CMC)
