WICB Media Release
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua (WICB) — The West Indies Cricket Board has welcomed its meeting with the CARICOM Committee on Cricket Governance this coming Monday in Grenada.
All 18 directors of the WICB including President Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron and Vice President Emmanuel Nanthan, along with Chief Executive Officer Michael Muirhead and Corporate Secretary Verlyn Faustin will meet with the CARICOM Committee at the Silver Sands Beach Resort.
“This will be a big opportunity for us to fortify our relationship with CARICOM,” said WICB Chief Executive Officer Michael Muirhead.
“We believe that the governments of the Caribbean are among the group of key stakeholders in West Indies cricket and we want to engage them on some of the critical matters relating to the advancement of the sport in the region.”
The two sides will discuss: (1) reform and governance of West Indies Cricket; (2) matters with the Board of Control for Cricket in India over the aborted West Indies Tour of India last year; and (3) the relationship between the CARICOM Committee on Cricket Governance and the WICB.
Grenada Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Keith Mitchell will chair the meeting, which will also be attended by Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie, the current CARICOM chairman; Antigua & Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne, chairman of the CARICOM Prime Ministerial Sub-Committee on Cricket; and St. Vincent & the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.
The meeting will be staged on the eve of the second Test between West Indies and England which starts the following day at the National Cricket Stadium. The three-Test series is level 0-0 after the first Test ended in a draw on Friday at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
