The recent public exchanges by the captain of the WI ODI team and his union head has been most revealing.
Everyone who knows Bravo just a little or listens to him speak at interviews knew fully well that he did not pen those emails that he forwarded to the WIPA head. In the process, he has done a few things:
1. He has displayed to the world his lack of penmanship and intelligence.
2. He has publicly displayed the greed of the majority of senior WI players which many have spoken about in hushed circles.
3. He has a very poor memory.
4. He is willing to burn bridges for the $$$.
5. He has shown that he can be easily misled and manipulated by others with their own agenda.
6. He is a stranger to the truth also.
Now why would he allow himself to be set up and used by someone who has brought WI cricket to its knees and cannot accept that he has been sidelined for the future of the best interests of WI cricket. Surely, he cannot be that naive to have agreed at an AGM to support retainer contracts for 90 more Caribbean players across the region rather than for a select 15 players only and then sign or forward an email that disputes what he agreed to.
Surely he must have read and understood the emails before he forwarded them. Is he that bad? Further, how can he expect to call for Hinds’ resignation when Hinds is promoting the interests of the majority of the WIPA membership rather than only the 15 senior players retained by WICB who have all signed off as agreeing to this action? Does he expect the 90 players including Sarwan who stand to benefit from these new retainer contracts to support his call for Hinds to go?
Bravo has surely embarrassed himself in this whole episode and his only saving grace has been and would be to continue winning matches for the team. Incidentally, the team seems to bring their A game to the fore in these challenging circumstances.
