Ganga Calls For Loosening Of Deadlock

Former Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies opening batsman Daren Ganga is appealing for a speedy resolution to the ongoing spat between Cricket West Indies (CWI) and suspended batsman Darren Bravo. Ganga posits the view that both Darren Bravo and CWI are poorer for the deadlock which currently obtains.

In a recent television interview, Cameron has advised that for Bravo to resume his international career he needs to remove the tweet from Twitter and admit to his wrong.

“What Darren Bravo has to do first and foremost is to take down the tweet. Every day that that tweet stays up is an infraction. Secondly, he needs to accept that he has done something wrong and then we can move forward from there,” Cameron reportedly said.

However, Bravo has been unwilling to remove the tweet in which he referred to the CWI President as a “big idiot” and has also taken the board to court.

Speaking on Hitz 92 FM’s Sports Grill, Ganga says it’s a “lose-lose” situation for both parties.

“It is not healthy for either party involved because here it is that you do not have one of your premier players on the team to make you more competitive, more marketable for you to achieve your mandate and strategic objectives as an organization. You also have a young player who is not getting the opportunity to play competitive cricket,” noted Ganga.

Ganga also argues that the board should step up and resolve the issue.

“At this point in time, I think the board should try behind closed doors to meet with Darren Bravo and resolve the situation or to get some person who Darren Bravo and his advisors can trust to act on his behalf to being both parties together,” said Ganga.

The 28-year-old Bravo has not played for the West Indies since November 3, last year. The left-hander had his match contract for a tri-nation series with Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka canceled after making the disparaging tweet to Cameron.
