Skerritt outlines 16 outcomes
The ten-point plan to rescue the game in the Caribbean has become a list of 16 outcomes, which Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Ricky Skerritt said are achievable over the next decade if he has his way.
Skerritt said he firmly believed that sticking to the “Cricket First” philosophy and implementing the “West Indians First” policy that helped to sweep him and vice-president Dr Kishore Shallow to victory in March 2019 will produce results.
The CWI president was speaking on the topic Reforming Cricket West Indies For Improved On-field Results during the 20th annual Frank Worrell Memorial Lecture, which was virtually hosted by the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies through its Faculty of Sport.
“The ‘Cricket First’ philosophy and the ‘West Indians First’ policy, which are interconnected and inextricable, together mandate that the revival of West Indies cricket should be developed around West Indian talent, culture and heritage,” he said.
“. . . . And should aim to always achieve excellence and pride in the best of what it means to be a West Indian.” (AGB)
