Former Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) president Joel Garner says it is a matter of regret that priceless assets like the legends of Barbados have not been consulted on the formulation of the association’s new five-year development plan.

But it is an oversight that Garner, who is a candidate for the BCA presidency at its elections next week, intends to rectify if he is restored to the top cricket post.

“There were no consultations on the BCA’s Cricket Development Plan 2019-2024 between the organisation and the public, interest groups, umpires, and the group of gentlemen that has the most cricket knowledge within the region, namely Cricket Legends of Barbados,” Garner pointed out.

The fast bowling legend noted that on the website, the headline says only that the BCA invites comments on the plan “and then proceeds to use the Mission Statement and Vision Statement with sub-headings”. (AB)
