Some Legends of West Indies cricket have called on the West Indies Cricket Board to dissolve the Board, appoint an Interim Committee as part of the structural reforms that would enable the region’s cricket to “develop and flourish.”
The legends, including Sir Garry Sobers, Sir Viv Richards, Sir Wes Hall and Sir Andy Roberts met in Grenada with Grenada’s Prime Minister, Keith Mitchell, the chairman of the Prime Ministerial Committee on the Governance of West Indies cricket.
Also invited to the meeting were other former West Indies players Roger Harper; Charlie Griffith; Deryck Murray; Dinanath Ramnarine; Desmond Haynes and Sports Psychologist, Rudi Webster.
The wish-list of the Legends is for the:
Immediate resignation of all current WICB directors.
Establishment of an interim board. Formation of a new board structure.
All sponsors of West Indies cricket to make good governance a condition for financial support.
The ICC to understand that the dysfunctional management and poor leadership of the WICB are harming the game.
CARICOM to appoint an independent auditor to carry out a detailed forensic audit of the Board.
