Chief Executive Officer of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Johnny Grave says modernising and improving the governance of the regional board will play a major role in rebuilding the image stained by a series of events surrounding the postponed CWI elections.

Originally, the annual general meeting was set for March 28 but in a stunning turn of developments last Sunday, CWI were forced to adjourn the virtual conference after Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) representatives were no-shows for the meeting.

CWI said that the AGM was pushed back because of lack of a quorum as only Jamaica, Leeward Islands, Windward Islands and Trinidad and Tobago were in attendance. Each of the six territorial boards has two votes.

“We are going through transformational change across every single part of the organisation on and off the field and the only thing that hasn’t really changed yet is the way we govern. We have to do what we need to do to update and enhance how we govern and that includes the election process and the articles,” Grave told NATION SPORT recently during a telephone interview.
