Zimbabwe tri-series 2016
Darren Bravo Dropped from Tri-series squad
Harare: Batsman Darren Bravo has been dropped from the West Indies squad in Zimbabwe for a triangular one-day international series because of "unacceptable behaviour", the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said on Saturday.
Bravo was replaced by Jason Mohammed in the 15-man squad one day after he described WICB chairman Dave Cameron as a "Big idiot" in a tweet following a disagreement over his playing contract.
In an interview with SportsMax TV, a Caribbean television network, Cameron said that Bravo had been offered a grade 'C' contract due to his slipping batting average.
In response, Bravo said he had never been offered a grade 'A' contract, tweeting. "You hav been failing 4 d last 4yrs. Y don't u resign and FYI I've neva been given an A contract. Big idiot @davec51."
On Saturday, the WICB said in a news release that Bravo had been replaced by Mohammed in the tour squad "due to inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour, which is contrary to his contractual obligations to the WICB".
The triangular one-day international series in Zimbabwe, which also features Sri Lanka, starts in Harare on Monday.
