Jamaican government is confirming that president of the West Indies Cricket Board Julian Hunte has requested a meeting with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller today in a bid to diffuse tension over the exclusion of former captain West Indies captain Chris Gayle from the West Indies team as well as other issues in regional cricket.

“Nobody has set any conditions for a meeting with the prime minister of Jamaica … that has not been communicated to the Office of the Prime Minister and the prime minister of Jamaica would not agree to that,” Falconer said.
