‘Major plans for CWI’
GEORGETOWN – Cricket West Indies presidential candidate, Anand Saenasie has listed the development of women’s cricket, a closer collaboration and power-sharing with territorial boards and an expansion thrust into the North American market, as areas critical to his vision for West Indies cricket.
“First, we recognise that the performance of the West Indies Team serves as a barometer for the state of West Indies Cricket and as the only constant in the regional psyche,” said Saenasie, who will be accompanied by Barbadian Calvin Hope as his vice-presidential running mate for next month’s elections scheduled for March 28.
He continued: “Secondly, regional cricket is what supplies and fortifies the West Indies team. The territorial boards manage the production line of elite players for the West Indies teams.
“We believe that regional cricket requires greater investment from the CWI level and will implement a system of greater (i) sponsorship share and (ii) larger annual subvention to each territorial board. (CMC)
