Star batsman Darren Bravo has been released from the West Indies squad for the tri-nations one-day series in Zimbabwe after a tweet he made that was directed at the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) chief Dave Cameron.
Bravo called one of the most important men in West Indies cricket a "big idiot", following a falling out with the WICB over their recent offer of a C-category player contract.
The batsman took to twitter to voice his displeasure, and clearly was upset over the deal he had been offered.

Jason Mohammed has replaced Bravo in the touring squad, with a WICB official spokesperson saying the 27-year-old was withdrawn "due to inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour, which is contrary to his contractual obligations to the WICB".
Bravo rejected the C-category contract that was offered to him, although Cameron believes it's the right offer given the form he's in.
"It is explicit that if your averages are not above a certain level it tells you what contracts you get. It is very, very explicit," Cameron had told SportsMax TV.
"His averages in the last two years have been declining, so what do you do? Reward poor performance or do you encourage him to get better?"
Bravo has averaged just 34 in Test cricket over the past two years, which is substantially lower than his career Test average of 40.
