WICB Campbell decision unanimous
THE REFUSAL to renew the coaching contract of former West Indies and Barbados opening batsman Sherwin Campbell as the WI women’s team’s head coach was a unanimous decision made to keep harmony within the women’s side, says chief executive officer of the West Indies Cricket Board Michael Muirhead.
While speculation runs rife as to the specific reason Campbell’s contract was not renewed, Muirhead declined to pinpoint the exact matter when questioned directly by NATION SPORT. He would only say that the matter which arose would have had “detrimental” implications for the squad had Campbell stayed on as coach.
In an interview after a WICB town hall meeting on Friday, Muirhead admitted that before the matter came to light the board planned to work with him for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.
“Sherwin has always been developing as a coach and I think we have always evaluated him to the extent we felt there was still something more that was wanted of him. So we were going from tour to tour hoping that it would improve. (SDB Media)
