CWI MEDIA STATEMENT
ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) wishes to issue a response to a recent story in the media in relation to Ms Shaquana Quintyne – the West Indies allrounder. Several misleading accusations were made in the story and CWI wants to place on record the facts, especially as we were not afforded the opportunity to comment by the publication.
“CWI categorically refutes the claims made by Ms Quintyne that she was left to fend for herself after being injured while on West Indies duty. CWI provided financial and medical support throughout the process and facilitated her rehabilitation and recovery after her various surgical procedures which were paid for in full by CWI. We sought to have the best medical help available in the region and outside and ensured she received full payments during the period under contract and for a period beyond the scheduled end of her contract. In addition to this, CWI also provided additional financial assistance for miscellaneous expenses incurred by Ms Quintyne during her period of rehabilitation.”
The report also indicated that Ms Quintyne was pursuing legal action. CWI is not presently aware of any legal action filed by or on behalf of the player. The last correspondence exchanged between CWI and any representative acting on behalf of Ms. Quintyne was back in January, 2019.
