Summary

  • PORT OF SPAIN – Cricket West Indies (CWI) chief executive Johnny Grave has warned there will be no immediate return to the international side for Darren Bravo, after the left-hander thrice rejected offers to end his exile from the senior squad.
  • The 29-year-old Bravo has not played for West Indies in 18 months since he was sent home ahead of the Zimbabwe Tri-Series for an ill-advised Twitter rant ridiculing CWI president Dave Cameron.
  • Grave said it was unlikely Bravo would be selected for the upcoming home series against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, especially having not played first class cricket for a protracted period.
  • He added: “We’ve got an A-team tour to England coming up that [he might be open to], if he wants to commit [to West Indies cricket].
  • Grave said he and director of cricket Jimmy Adams intended to meet with Bravo to ascertain what his career plans were and if they involved representing West Indies.
