West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) chairman Dave Cameron has stated that following Darren Bravo‘s poor performance in the recent matches, and thus leading to dipping averages, it has fetched him a Grade-C contract from the WICB. Cameron also said that apart from Kraigg Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels, no other West Indies player had received a higher grade contract. Apart from Darren Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite and Samuels have also declined their respective contracts, who were given Grade-B contract. This is also the first time, when the WICB has come up with an explanation on why Darren Bravo was offered a low-grade contract. Darren Bravo reportedly offered Grade C central contract by WICB leading to refusal

“It is explicit that if your averages are not above a certain level it tells you what contracts you get. It is very, very explicit. His averages in the last two years have been declining, so what do you do? Reward poor performance or do you encourage him to get better?” said Cameron to SportsMax TV. “If you continue to keep giving him an A contract then what is the motivation to get better? He has been on an A contract and he hasn’t done well,” he added.

Bravo, in the meanwhile, went on to Twitter where he accused the WICB for never handing him a Grade-A contract. “You hav been failing 4 d last 4yrs. Y don’t u resign and FYI I’ve neva been given an A contract. Big idiot @davec51,” he wrote on Twitter.
