‘Lack of communication’ leaves Bravo out Regional Super50

first_imgOUT-of-favour Windies batsman Darren Bravo will not represent Trinidad and Tobago in the upcoming Regional Super50 tournament despite claims he made himself eligible for selection.The 28-year-old has, however, put the situation down to a lack of understanding. The batsman, who was out of competitive cricket for an extended period, claims he had indicated his availability for the competition to coach Kelvin Williams in late December.The information was, however, not passed on to the chairman of selectors and the player was as a result not considered.“I had a conversation with the head coach Mr Kelvin Williams and I outlined precisely my availability and that if I have to play in any of the remaining games it will be the last one in Guyana. I also told him on January 7 that I am available for the first eight games of the Regional Super50.He said the selectors have selected a 22-man squad and he will have to let the chairman know and get back to me,” Bravo said via social media website Twitter.The chairman of selectors Raphick Jumadeen insisted he was only aware of the player’s availability after the team was finalised and as such, no adjustments could be made.“The 14-man team for the Regional Super50 was selected on Saturday and only Monday was I informed by the coach that Bravo was available. We are not going to open any discussion as far as changing that 14-man team now and Bravo will not be accommodated at this time,” Jumadeen said.last_img
