The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the CARICOM committee on cricket governance say they have ended a “productive” meeting where an agreement has been reached on “the way forward” for West Indies cricket.
However both parties have declined to comment on the specifics of the agreement following their meeting which ran for nearly five hours at the upscale Spice Island Beach resort in Grenada’s southern tourist belt late Monday.
WICB president Dave Cameron and Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell said details of the agreement will be contained in a joint press release to be issued Tuesday.
Prime Minister Mitchell chaired the meeting also attended by Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie, the current CARICOM chairman; Antigua & Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne, and St Vincent & the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves.
All 18 directors of the WICB including President Cameron and Vice President Emmanuel Nanthan, along with Chief Executive Officer Michael Muirhead and Corporate Secretary Verlyn Faustin met with the CARICOM Committee which also included CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque.
The two sides were expected to discuss the abandoned tour of India last October, the reform and governance of West Indies Cricket, and the relationship between the CARICOM Committee on Cricket Governance and the WICB.
Also in attendance were West Indies cricket legends who met with the four CARICOM Prime Ministers earlier in the day at the same venue.
