ST JOHN’S – There is major concern that “significant high cost” could result from the appointment of Englishman Richard Pybus as interim head coach of the West Indies men’s team.

In arguing his case against the appointment, Leeward Islands Cricket Board president, Enoch Lewis, said the associated costs were “unplanned and unbudgeted”, and were unlikely to impact adversely on the already frail Cricket West Indies finances.

“. . . [A] significant high cost to CWI is likely to arise out of the decision to hand-pick and appoint Mr Pybus as interim head coach given the likely hiring of new coaches and conversely the termination of the existing coaching staff,” Lewis wrote in a letter to CWI, a copy of which was obtained by CMC Sports.

“Most of whom are under contract until September 2019, and because this cost is unplanned and unbudgeted and happening at a time when CWI is experiencing serious cash flow challenges as reflected by the existing significant cash deficit, which has negatively impacted the company’s capacity to meet normal day-to-day expenses.” (CMC)
