Ramnarine under fire in T&T

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Former West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) president Dinanath Ramnarine has come under fire for criticising the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board’s (TTCB) position on the sacking of Denesh Ramdin as captain of the West Indies Cricket team. TTCB president Azim Bassarath and former Trinidad and Tobago Red Force manager Manohar Ramsaran have both blasted Ramnarine after he told the Daily Express that he was confused by TTCB’s stance on Ramdin’s removal. Ramdin was axed as Test captain after just 15 months in charge and replaced by one-day skipper Jason Holder ahead of their tour of Sri Lanka. “It is unethical and highly irresponsible to be a member of an organisation and run to the media and air your views when there are processes within the organisation to have your complaints and concerns properly addressed,” said Ramsaran who also suggested that Ramnarine should have tendered his resignation before going public with his baseless comments. “It was under his watch that regional cricket was made a laughing stock and while he advocated a militant approach to resolving players’ issues, the fortunes of the team hit rock bottom and are yet to recover”. Ramnarine is an ordinary board member of the TTCB. He was replaced last year as WIPA president by Jamaican Wavell Hinds.last_img read more
