ZIMBABWE cricket team captain Brendan Taylor has apologised to Zimbabwe Cricket after a public outburst following the omission of specialist coaches Grant Flower and Heath Streak from the tour of the West Indies.

The two coaches and fitness trainer, Lorraine Chivandire, will not travel to the Caribbean next week.
 
Taylor had been threatened with disciplinary action after he took to Facebook to criticise Zimbabwe Cricket.

“I have noted that the comments I posted last week, were made in the heat of the moment, ref. the decision made by the ZC board to leave Grant, Heath and Lorraine out of the touring West Indies squad. This was really not my intention,” he said on Thursday.

“I now appreciate that Facebook was not the right platform to air my concerns and I have since spoken to the Managing Director of ZC and apologised.

“Seeing, however, that my initial comments were made here on FB, we both agreed that it was only fair to then alert my followers and other people who had picked up my comment that the issue has been resolved.

“The point is that while I may not be happy that Grant, Heath and Lorraine are not going with the team to the West Indies, I now am better informed as to how the decision was arrived at and that the recommendation which the Cricket Committee made to the ZC Board and which the board then adopted as policy, was actually based on what had been discussed in general terms, in a meeting with the committee last year.

“I remain committed to ZC, and look forward to leading the side to the West Indies. I am happy that I have had this time in the Bangladesh Premier League to continue with my preparations!”

Zimbabwe will play three ODIs, two Twenty20s and two Tests against the West Indies.
