Sarwan resigns from WIPA board
Ramnaresh Sarwan’s tussle with the WICB took another twist when he, Sarwan, and the lead counsel for the WIPA in recent actions against the WICB, Dave Kissoon, both resigned from the Executive of the WIPA.
In a statement the WIPA acknowledge that both Sarwan, a former WI captain and middle order batsman, and Kisson, have contributed to the progress of the WIPA as an organization that represents WI players. In the absence of a statement from Sarwan and Kissoon speculation is out there that Sarwan having scored a 161 thousand dollar judgement against the WICB, may be looking to patch up things and once again wear maroon and white. Sarwan had lodged an appeal, in conjunction with WIPA, in March 2011 for what his legal team said was unfairly questioning in public his fitness and attitude. This, according to Sarwan, effectively cost him not only a central contract for the 2010-11 season, but also damaged his “reputation as a professional cricketer” and “sullied his career as an international cricketer”.
In the absence of first class cricket being played in Guyana, Sarwan has been playing with English county Leicester.
