CWI denies abandoning injured bowler
Cricket West Indies (CWI) has rejected claims by Barbadian all-rounder Shaquana Quintyne that she was abandoned after being injured three years ago.
CEO Johnny Grave on Tuesday night described her allegations, in an online publication as “hugely disappointing and . . . massively damaging to our reputation”.
Far from leaving Quintyne to fend for herself after she sustained a “dreadful” injury during a West Indies Women’s training camp at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua in 2017, Grave said CWI paid the bill for her surgeries.
The 24-year-old former Barbados and West Indies cricketer recalled that the cruciate ligaments in her right knee tore when she dived to stop a ball while fielding at extra-cover during a practice session. (CMC)
