Mitchell blasts WICB for Simmons’ sacking

Social Share

NEW YORK – Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has reacted angrily to the sacking of West Indies head coach Phil Simmons, blasting the move as “bizarre”.

In a strongly-worded press statement released yesterday afternoon, Mitchell expressed his “disgust” with the decision and says it is not in the best interest of West Indies cricket.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced the sacking Tuesday as the team was preparing to leave for the United Arab Emirates for a series against Pakistan in all three formats of the game.

“The decision to fire coach Simmons is consistent with the actions of this current WICB . . . rather than by what is in the best interest of West Indies cricket,” said Mitchell, who is in New York on state business. (CMC)
