West Indies players mull strike over pay structure
In an extraordinary and unprecedented move, West Indies players have come out strongly against the West Indies Players Association president and chief executive Wavell Hinds, who they claim "hood-winked" them and did not take their inputs while signing a new memorandum of understanding with West Indies Cricket Board last month, under which they would suffer a significant cut in their payment.
It leaves open the possibility of strike action again and in a letter, in possession of ESPNcricinfo, the players' representative, Dwayne Bravo, wrote that the morale within the team, as they prepare for the first ODI against India, to be played today in Kochi, was "at an all-time low."
Incidentally West Indies skipped the scheduled training session on Tuesday afternoon, as well as the media briefing without giving any reason.
