NOT BY OUR DOING Barbados Cricket Association president Joel Garner.

NEITHER Joel Garner nor the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) bowled an unreasonable delivery to shatter the stumps of former national captain Kirk Edwards.

That assertion came from BCA president Garner as he spoke publicly on the matter for the first time since a non-compliant Edwards was sent home from Trinidad and Tobago for refusing to sign for his team uniforms on the eve of the NAGICO Super50 Cup that Barbados subsequently won.

“I think that Kirk is his own man and he has to decide what he wants to do in terms of his future going forward,” Garner told the SATURDAY SUN following a function inside the President’s Box on Thursday night to salute captain Kevin Stoute and his triumphant Barbados team.

Garner also defended why the BCA, like most employment companies, has put such a rule in place.

“People seem to think that I am too hard and too fast [but] in every area of work, whether you work in the Port [Authority], whether you are a policeman, whether you are a conductor, wherever you go, people sign for uniforms. There is nothing new about it,” Garner pointed out.

Why is it taking so long to make a decision on this matter,are you going to wait until just before the 1st class season to say the what the punishment if any will be?Time is money, and don't you think he should know what his fate is by now? you all should really stop playing with people career, just like in the domestic season you take too long to settle matters.Stop sleeping on the job.
