TOUGH TALK: Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron says the board needs players to commit to West Indies. (FP)
KINGSTON – Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron has questioned the commitment of West Indies players and has warned that “serious decisions” will be taken at board level to curb the problem.
Speaking in a radio interview in the wake of the Windies historic series whitewash by Bangladesh in the two-Test series last week, Cameron said the board was spending “millions of dollars” to develop players but was not managing to maximise its investment.
“Part of our challenge is we’re having players who are going in and out of the system. They’re not fit enough and we spend millions of dollars on bringing them to where they’re at, and we need players to commit to West Indies,” Cameron said.
A CWI board meeting was held in Trinidad last weekend, which Cameron said would have been used to come to “serious decisions” on what is referred to as the “West Indies cricket first policy”. (CMC)
