In my humble opinion, the leadership of the
West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is of paramount
importance and not because of the regional cricket
team s poor showing over the past decade.
Logistically, the number eight position is quite a
distance from the number one spot in the world
ratings, a statistic which has caused long-lasting
pain among the fans in the Caribbean.
Unfortunately, there is little that the support
system can contribute other than the patriotic cheer-
ing after a good stroke, a brilliant delivery or an
However, the task of finding a competent leader
is much easier than coming to terms with the per-
formance of the present regime.
It makes good sense to ignore the numerous prob-
lems which are facing the hierarchy, all without any
form of acceptable
solutions, and pay
attention to the
selection of person-
nel who will have
the ability, the per-
sonality and the
to rectify the com-
plexities of a quag-
mire of mistakes
which are too
numerous to men-
With just a cou-
ple weeks before the elections, the rumours have
changed from the original comments made by the
current president regarding chances to retain the
position, to a whisper that some of the countries
have demonstrated support for the seven foot burly
former fast bowler Joel Garner.
With little time to enquire about the capability
of the friendly Barbadian, his track record with the
new ball during his career, plus his contribution to
cricket in Barbados from an administrative viewpoint,
add to these features the absolute desire to perform
with success from his personal perspective.
My belief is a solid yes to Garner s name even
before hearing what his contribution will be to the
game at all levels.
There will be no argument to his choice over Dave
Cameron, whose nativeland committee, incidentally,
seemed to have decided to support the burly fast
bowler over their own, Mr Cameron.
No doubt each territory should be paying close
attention to their choices in terms of their ability
to serve in the quality capacity which is seriously
A legal mind will be a great idea especially if
he/she is supported by a marketing expert, a sports
psychologist and some students of the game of
cricket whose jobs will be based strictly upon devel-
oping the potential of the vast numbers of young
players who appear to have the natural talent to
start the recovery to the top.
There is need for a few watchdogs who should
be given the job of monitoring the ICC and their
haphazard decisions, some of which may have caused
some players to change their minds about playing
certain facets of the game.
Few will expect the board to retain the present
crop of selectors, whose decisions have been well
short of sound technical knowledge and seem tinted
by weak forms of decisions which had little to do
with the actual performances of the players.
Personally, I will much prefer to see a change in
structure for the selection process. With all the
countries spreaded and separated by water, I would
prefer to see the appointment of at least four coaches,
each one with responsibility for three or four coun-
They must work in conjunction of the local national
coaches and ensure that the process of nurturing
these players towards better match preparation in
their approach to the game, is well orchestrated.
They will also be able to serve the selectors with the current
state of the players in terms of fitness, mental readiness, and
even their off the field plans as far as representing the region is
There is yet another chance to make a positive input towards
changing the image of the game and the results as well.
Finally, it is never quite clear as to the choice of venues for
the different series to be played in the West Indies. Do these
experts take the weather patterns, the financial ability of the
countries citizens to fill the stadium and also the pockets of the
The time is running out for the clubs and countries to vote
towards a better run West Indian Cricket. We look forward enthu-
siastically to the future.
