Darren Bravo has expressed disappointment over the way he has been treated ever since he called Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron a ‘big idiot’ on Twitter. Bravo hasn’t played for the national side since then and was also dropped from the Trinidad and Tobago squad. “I had two IPL contracts before Kolkata Knight Riders,” Bravo told the television show Line & Length. “I give up those two contracts. I also had opportunity to go and play in the T20 World Cup that West Indies won in India. I gave up that to stay home and play first-class cricket.
“I could have jumped on the plane, gone to the T20 World Cup in India. If I get selected all well and good. If I don’t get selected, no problem, but I would have got approximately US$ 7,000 for one T20 game. I decided to stay home to play first-class cricket (where) I get paid $1300 (per match).”
“Yes, I want to play cricket for West Indies again, but at the end of the day when I step on to the field I want to be able to be happy, I want to be able to enjoy my cricket once more,” he stated. “That is something I have been lacking probably for the last year playing for West Indies. That is the total honest truth.”
