The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has rubbished media reports stating that they sacked team manager Sir Richie Richardson.

According to a report in theĀ Trinidad Guardian newspaper, Richardson was fired after the West Indies pulled out midway through their recent tour of India and has been replaced by his former team-mate Joel Garner.

However, the WICB reiterated that Richardson has not been fired and nor has he replaced by Garner.

“The WICB wishes to make it explicitly clear that contrary to media reports, Sir Richie Richardson has not been removed as Team Manager of the West Indies Team,” a WICB release said.
