MUMBAI, India, April 23, 2016 – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will involve the International Cricket Council (ICC) while hosting the annual review program for their management and technical plans. This was revealed by the WICB president Dave Cameron.

“Coming up in May this year, the Board will host its annual review (retreat) with the players, WIPA (West Indies Players’ Association), selectors and the technical team to review players, management and technical plans,” Cameron said.

Their men and women teams recently won the ICC-organised World T-20 in India. This (the review) will be done after the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) where few of their players participate.

“There are players who are currently committed to playing in the T20 cricket leagues around the world and we are aware of that schedule, hence the plan to meet after that time. We want to see how we can find common ground in ensuring that the best players in the region are available for selection for West Indies teams,” the President added.

“We are fully aware of the financial rewards on offer in the lucrative international T20 leagues, but we believe deeply in the importance of cricket to the people of the region and of West Indies cricket’s place in world cricket. It is therefore a priority to have all of our players competing and available for selection.”

“We will also engage the ICC on this so that we protect not only the rich heritage and legacy of West Indies Cricket, but also its future,” he further added.

The Windies cricket board has also plans to inquire with Darren Sammy for slamming his employers while lifting the title.

“I would like to apologise for what could be deemed inappropriate, comments made by the West Indies’ male captain Darren Sammy in a post-match interview and would like to apologise on behalf of the WICB, to the millions of fans who witnessed. I have pledged to enquire the reason and will have the matter addressed,” he concluded.
