WICB, CARICOM meeting ends in stalemate

The meeting between Caricom’s sub-committee on cricket governance and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), arranged to discuss the recent report on the WICB’s management, ended in stalemate in St.George’s on Friday.

The two organisations reportedly remained poles apart in their positions on the panel’s recommendation that the WICB be ‘‘immediately dissolved and all its current members resign’’.

It added that an interim board would appoint a replacement ‘‘whose structure and composition will be radically different from the now proven, obsolete governance framework’’.

It is now highly unlikely that the two will meet again on the issue, leaving the ball in the hands of Caricom’s full prime ministerial committee on cricket.

As it is, prime ministers Portia Simpson-Miller of Jamaica and Ralph Gonsalves of St.Vincent and the Grenadines are engaged in preparing for parliamentary elections.
