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.
