Edwards yet to have his say

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC- A meeting to discuss a dispute between former Barbados Cricket captain Kirk Edwards and the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), did not come off as planned, media reports from Bridgetown have indicated.

The meeting, involving an adhoc committee of the BCA led by President Joel Garner and including Edwards’ attorney Donna Symmonds, were scheduled for the Kensington Oval Monday night.

However Barbados TODAY has reported that Edwards, a West Indies test and One-Day player, waited in vain for two hours and still no meeting took place.

“The BCA president [Garner] was at the meeting and other members of the BCA, as well as attorney-at-law Pat Cheltenham,” Barbados TODAY, quoted a BCA source as saying.

“But Kirk and his lawyer were made to wait outside the room and he never got the chance to speak to anyone in the BCA. No one invited him into the room where the meeting was held”.

Edwards was expelled from the Barbados team on the eve of the NAGICO Super50 tournament , underway in Trinidad and Tobago, for refusing to sign for match kits which he said were substandard.

West Indies Players Association (WIPA) president Wavell Hinds has criticized Barbados team manager Hartley Reid for his handling of the dispute.

BCA officials who held their own meeting at Kensington oval Monday while Edwards waited to meet with them have declined to comment on the issue.

“I have no comment to make to the Press.” Said Garner, the former Windies pacer when asked about the outcome of the BCA meeting.

Edwards had said that he never had any disciplinary problems and last week WICB president Dave Cameron praised his leadership of the West Indies “A” team.
