WICB steps in the brew
THE?WEST?INDIES?Cricket Board (WICB)?has moved swiftly in trying to defuse the brewing controversy between Barbados and the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) over team selection.
Cousins Jonathan Carter and Carlos Brathwaite, who have been selected in the Barbados’ 14-man squad, have both written to the BCA indicating their preference to represent CCC?in the upcoming Regional Super50 one-day tournament in Guyana from October 18 to 29.
And on Friday, WICB’s corporate secretary Stephen Camacho sent an email, a copy of which was obtained by SUNSPORT,?to the board directors as well as a number of WICB officials, including chief executive officer, Dr Ernest Hilaire.
Under the headline: Composition of the CCC Team – Regional Super50 Tournament in Guyana – Camacho explained that at a meeting of the executive committee of the WICB in St Lucia on September 24, two important decisions were taken in that regard.
1: “It was agreed that for the forthcoming Super50 tournament, the CCC will retain all players in its selected squads.
2. The WICB?will determine further policy on this matter after consideration of a proposal from the Cricket Commitee at its board meeting from October 14 to 16, 2011.” (EZS)
