Face to face Kirk Edwards: to meet with the BCA.

By Barry Alleyne | Fri, February 07, 2014 - 12:06 AM

Embattled West Indies player Kirk Edwards will soon get his chance to talk – to the Barbados Cricket Association, that is.

The WEEKEND NATION has been reliably informed that BCA officials have started negotiations to have a “sit-down session” with Edwards to find out the details about what led to his being expelled from the NAGICO Super-50 tournament last Sunday mere hours before the team’s first match against hosts Trinidad and Tobago.

The usually media-shy Edwards did speak out a little on Tuesday after returning home, but few details regarding his discipline last weekend are yet to be made public.

“This is a serious situation we have. A player has been sent home, so the BCA needs to know exactly what happened in Trinidad,” a BCA source noted yesterday while seeking anonymity.

According to the source, it is yet to be determined if Edwards will meet with a specially convened committee which will report directly to the BCA executive board, or if he will have to face the association’s Disciplinary Committee and face further discipline.

Edwards, 29, who opened for West Indies in the recent Test series in New Zealand, was sent home by the BCA board after the non-signing of a document to receive his playing uniform for the NAGICO Super-50 tournament.

can SOMEONE/ANYONE explain to me HOW and WHY this has Happened. this is a Barbados Cricket TEAM, that was selected to Represent Barbados at a Meeting Held in Barbados, the TEAM was announced in Barbados, why then was the team Flown to T&T before these Match Kits were Presented to the Players, would that not have saved them the time and expense of sending this player to T&T and then bringing him back?? another thing!! if he is playing in a game and dives to catch a ball or stop a ball from going for four runs and the Pants get torn, why should he have to pay for it, is that not the COST of DOING Business?? are they not supposed to win at all/any cost?? or should the not go toextremes if the KIT will be Damaged?? seem a little SILLY to me, but what do i Know about fouling up our Cricket team. if i were him i would be scouring my Ancestry to see if i Have any Past relatives that were BORN/LIVED in T&T.Guyans,St.Lucia, etc that would make me eligible to play for them and tell the BCA to "Take their Job and Shove it"
