TTCB head fears ill-treatment
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) president, Azim Bassarath says he disagrees with the decision to sack Denesh Ramdin as Test captain and hopes the move is not part of any plan to target Trinidadian players.
And the outspoken WICB director also said he was not a part of the West Indies Cricket Board directors’ teleconference last Wednesday when the decision to remove Ramdin was ratified.
Ramdin was axed on Friday after just 15 months in charge and replaced by one-day skipper Jason Holder, a recommendation from selectors which the WICB said had been “endorsed unanimously” by directors during the teleconference.
But Bassarath told the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday he had not attended the meeting because of his commitments as a returning officer for today’s general elections. (CMC)
