Dwayne Bravo has branded the West Indies Cricket Board as "the most unprofessional board in the world" and says president Dave Cameron is "arrogant" and "very immature".
Bravo, 32, was stripped of the West Indies captaincy two years ago after leading a players' strike that resulted in their tour of India being cancelled midway through.
And speaking just days after lifting the World Twenty20 trophy following the dramatic win over England, Bravo launched a scathing attack on the WICB, revealing the team were not even provided with the correct kit for the tournament.
"I think we had enough as players," he told Trinidad and Tobago cable TV station CNC3.
"A lot of people come down on the players; they questioned our commitment; they questioned whether we really committed to West Indies cricket or is it just the money?
"A lot of people don't understand the sort of thing we go through as players dealing with our board. I think they're the most unprofessional board in the world.
"We get to India, our names were not even printed on the uniforms.
"Our manager had to leave our camp early to go and organise the uniforms and get names and numbers printed while in India. We played this entire tournament without caps."
The Windies are now reigning men's and women's T20 champions, as well as U19 World Cup holders, but the decision of WICB president Cameron to tweet shortly after the game further incensed Bravo.
Cameron tweeted: "When is the last time a critic paid one your bills? Always remember that when you start to give them your energy."
Bravo said: "I'm not surprised by the president's tweet, because it's expected of him. He's someone who is very immature.
"Two years ago when we had a problem on the Indian tour and myself and [Kieron] Pollard were victimised, that's his way of dealing with things. They are very small-minded people, especially the president.
"The players, we feel hurt, the time has come where we can't take it any more.
"Someone needs to put a stop to it because cricket is being run by people who do not have West Indies cricket at heart.
"Where the president is concerned, this guy is just an arrogant guy."
