Fresh controversy appears to be brewing between the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the regional squad preparing to participate in the T20 World Cup in India, media reports in Trinidad and Tobago suggest.

The players, captained by all-rounder Darren Sammy, are objecting to a 75 per cent pay cut imposed by the WICB ahead of the World Cup, set to begin on March 8th, the Trinidad and Tobago-based radio station, I 95.5 FM, has reported.

Sammy has reportedly written to the WICB requesting an urgent meeting as a February 14th Valentine’s Day deadline for the players to sign the contract looms.

The fresh controversy between the WICB and the T20 squad is brewing about a year and a half after the regional squad called off their tour of India abruptly over a longstanding payment structure dispute.
