    Sponsor memo blasts West Indies cricketers' conduct in Australia

    A mini crisis is brewing in West Indies cricket, again, after a leaked memo by team sponsors Digicel blasts the attitude of the players towards the sponsors, the media and the total lack of professionalism displayed during the recent VB Series in Australia.

    The memo mentions specific instances where players were disrespectful to him and the media and also accuses the players of entertaining women in their hotel rooms well past midnight before games and on one occasion, soon after a game was lost. In addition, it chronicles instances of several star players, including Lara, openly indicating that they would have nothing to do with Digicel since they were signed up by Cable & Wireless, who were the previous sponsors.

    The West Indies Players Association has obviously rubbished the claims as unjustified.

    The memo was written by Richard Nowell who played for Surrey and was media liaison for Vodafone, sponsor of England's cricket team.
