The captain of the West Indies Cricket Team Darren Sammy has made it clear that West Indies Players Association (WIPA) is not their representative as 14 of the 15 players are not part of the association and they want more payments to play World T20 Championship.
West Indian players and board have been indulging in this dispute for last few years now, when they had also backed out after playing few games in the series against India in India. They had gone back after only three games which ruined the image of the country in Cricket World.
Sammy sent an email to board and wrote that he does not want the same thing to be repeated once again and would prefer the issue is sorted out as soon as possible. He wrote that they also have to do the preparation and would like to be told about the decision of the board in three or four days.
WIPA had done a deal with the Board but Andre Fletcher is only player who is associated with the player. Sammy wrote that the association is doing it for their own benefits and interests. He also wrote that they will play but only when non-WIPA players are given their proper right.
On the other hand WIPA President, the former cricketer Wavell Hinds was not happy with Sammy's statement and said that the players were told about this payment method last year and they had no objection at that time but now suddenly they are not satisfied.
