Bravo taking legal action against WICB after sacking

IANS  |  Port of Spain (Trinidad) 

batsman Darren Bravo is taking legal action against the Cricket Board (WICB) after he was dropped from the squad before their recent tri-nations One-Day International (ODI) series in Zimbabwe.

Bravo is claiming unlawful dismissal after he was sent home by the on-tour management committee for blasting WICB president Dave Cameron in a row over contracts, reports CMC.

The Guardian newspaper has reported that Bravo's lawyer has sent a pre-action protocol letter to the WICB last week which has been received by the board.

Bravo, the most consistent batsman for the Caribbean side in the longest format, was overlooked for the top tier and offered a Grade C contract.

The row between the stylish Trinidadian batsman and Cameron erupted after the WICB chief gave an explanation for the omission, stating that Bravo's performance was not consistent enough to merit a higher grade of pay.

Bravo lashed out at Cameron on social media platform Twitter, accusing him and the board officials of never offering him a Grade A contract in the first place despite his consistency.

In the tweet, Bravo was alleged to have referred to the WICB President as "a big idiot".
