CWI even-handed with regional boards – says CEO
Cricket West Indies (CWI) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Johnny Grave said the regional body has been equitable in its allocation of international fixtures and financial resources.
The Englishman said CWI is always cognizant about accusations of partiality toward certain territories and the board’s philosophy by way of policy is to ensure insularity is removed from the regional game.
Grave said, pre-COVID, a decision was taken to ensure that every international ground or every territory that has international cricket would have at least a Test match or two white ball games.
Grave explained that the cricket is spread around the region with the intention of removing accusations of politics. Grave noted that the distribution of funds to all franchises and territorial boards are done on an equitable basis with no favor shown to any board or territory.
Grave said in order for West Indies cricket to succeed, there needs to be productive synergy between CWI and all territorial boards.
