Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Ricky Skerritt said he was ‘deeply disappointed’ and promised a full review of the West Indies cricket team’s preparation and performance after a shocking T20 World Cup exit on Friday.
“I am deeply disappointed with the performance results of our team in Australia and I appreciate the sense of frustration that is being experienced by many,” Skerritt said in a brief statement.
“The ongoing inability of our batsmen to prevail over opposing slow bowling continued to be an obvious weakness in Australia,” the CWI President stated.
Skerritt’s statement came after West Indies’ nine-wicket defeat to Ireland.
The defeat eliminated them from the main draw of the tournament.
The CWI President said all aspects of the team’s performance would come under the microscope.
He promised stakeholders a thorough post-mortem on all aspects of the West Indies World Cup preparation and performance.
And Skerritt disclosed that solutions would be found in keeping with CWI’s strategy to improve the quality and sustainability of cricket on all fronts and in all formats.
“West Indies cricket is bigger than any one individual or event, and continues to need the input and support of all stakeholders,” he declared.
looool not Darren Sammy yall wanted to treat bad uh. the real people that have the passion for the game you this board want to run them down so take what yall get
Don’t just be disappointed, all of you need to resign. From yourself to the various coaches and captain. Bottom line!
Sometimes we try to be optimistic however except for us St Lucians who were over excited and proud to have Johnson Charles back on the team we have to be honest this team was not the best one to compete in this tournament.
Gassa, the West Indies should only play beach cricket. The pitch should never be where the sea water creeps on the sand…too fast for dem men.
Johnson Charles done well, I proud of him.
Darran Sammy is a CHAMPION. He needs to get the CWI Presidency.
The Treated Darren Sammy as if He was no Human Being Because He’s from St.Lucia .Well the Trinis Kill West Indies Cricket. It will take 20 years For that Dead Horse West.Indies Team to Recover
No post mortem necessary; at any rate, not at this stage. A post mortem should have been done from the moment West Indies was required to take part in the preliminaries to progress to the Super-12 stage. The fact is West Indies cricket has declined in all formats especially under the Skerrit/Shallow administration. It’s telling and painful too that Zimbabwe, Ireland, and the Netherlands are still in the competition while 2-time champions, West Indies are out. The standard of the 2022 CPL was poor. Pooran may be talented but he’s been woefully inconsistent. Appointing him as captain was a mistake. Phil Simmons has not proven himself as coach and should be replaced. In any other jurisdiction the entire cricket board would have held itself accountable for this shameful performance and resigned.
