Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne has added his voice to the growing list of regional commentary on what is needed to return West Indies Cricket to the glory days of the 70s and 80s.
In a rebut to Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s call for “visionary and competent management” at the West Indies following the teams embarrassing exit in the early stages of the T20 Cricket World Cup, Browne said the team needs to have a development program that can identify talent and nurture “resilient cricketers, starting at the grassroots level”.
“The fundamental problem with West Indies Cricket is not about governance, to include gaps in the management. While the need for strengthened governance is acknowledged; this decades old governance scapegoat is a stale and dissipated argumentation of little value. All this flawed over-emphasis on governance has done, is to create a culture of leadership instability”.
Browne has called on the region to come together and invest in “revolutionising” West Indies Cricket.
“Solution-less critical talk is cheap and is certainly not the answer. The transformation of our cricket requires the cooperation and collaboration of all stakeholders and the requisite strategic investments, to develop more talented and resilient players.” Browne stated. (Loop Sports)
