Gayle matter over to tribunal
WEST INDIES CRICKET BOARD (WICB) president Dave Cameron said Wednesday that Chris Gayle’s public criticism of the omissions of Dwayne Bravo and Keiron Pollard from the squad for next month’s World Cup had been referred to its disciplinary tribunal.
Cameron revealed during a wide-ranging interview on Sportsmax, the tv sports channel out of Jamaica, that Gayle had breached the code of conduct clause in the tour contract by his comments. But he did not know whether tribunal chairman Justice Adrian Saunders, 61, a Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) judge from St Vincent and The Grenadines, had yet summoned a meeting to deal with the case.
It last convened a year ago over a “conduct unbecoming” charge against Deandra Dottin of the West Indies Women’s team in an incident during the Tri-Nation Twenty20 tournament in Barbados in 2013. The outcome was Dottin’s suspension for the tour of New Zealand last February and March.
