West Indian cricket commentator banned from speaking to players


WEST Indian cricket commentator Fazeer Mohammed has reportedly been banned from interviews with the regional players on the tour of Australia.According to reports the Trinidadian’s outspokenness regarding the dire state of regional cricket has not found favour with the players or coach Phil Simmons.
Broadcasting in the outfield before play with his ABC colleagues at the MCG, Mohammed was told by a West Indies official that their players would no longer be participating in interviews with him there.
Simmons is reported to be particularly annoyed by an interview with a Barbados radio station where he claimed the preparation of the Australians ahead of the second Test was superior to the West Indies. Mohammed had claimed their training lacked intensity and purpose in contrast to Australia’s sessions in Melbourne. (Sportsmax.com)
