ST JOHN’S – Marquee all-rounder Hayley Matthews will take no part in the series against Australia after being pulled from the West Indies women’s squad for disciplinary reasons.
A Cricket West Indies media release yesterday failed to outline the 21-year-old’s charge but said she breached CWI’s code of conduct in an “incident that took place on Wednesday”.
“The matter has been referred to the CWI disciplinary tribunal,” the CWI release stated. “CWI will make no further comment at this time.”
Matthews, also the side’s vice-captain, is one of the leading batsmen in the world and was expected to play a key role against the powerful Australians in both the One-Day International and Twenty20 series. (CMC)
