In 2005, VB Series was organized in Australia, West Indies lost 5 back to back matches out of six matches. The sponsors Digicel was so shocked and agitated that they claimed that the players had more phone numbers of the women than their runs. Digicel Representative Richard Nowell himself confirmed that on the eve of West Indies matches in Brisbane, he had heard numerous doors banging and many female voices before the match.

The players should understand and respect the seriousness of the game. They must behave responsibly and must not take advantage of their name and fame. It destroys the spirit of the game as well as their careers.
