West Indies batsman Darren Bravo is taking legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) after he was dropped from the squad before the recently concluded Tri-nation One-Day 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.

According to the The Trinidad Guardian newspaper, Bravo’s lawyer sent a pre-action protocol letter to the WICB last week – which has since 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 batsman and Cameron erupted after Cameron gave an explanation for their offer, stating that Bravo’s performances were not consistent enough to merit a higher grade of pay.

Bravo lashed out at Cameron on 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 used unsavory language when referring to the WICB President. -(CMC)
