Former West Indies captain Brian Lara and Mickey Arthur, who is currently Derbyshire’s cricket boss, are part of a three-member panel announced by Cricket West Indies to conduct a review of the West Indies’ early 2022 exit T20 WC that took place in Australia. Justice Patrick Thompson Jr., Superior Court Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, will chair the group.
Having suffered defeats to Scotland and Ireland in the T20 WC group stage, the West Indies failed to qualify for the Super 12 stage of the event which England won. The only win for the West Indies was against Zimbabwe who went through to the next round along with Scotland.
The three-member panel, which has already begun its work, “will present a Report to the CIT Board of Directors, with relevant information and clear recommendations. This review is also intended to establish a process and template for future performance reviews. The Terms of Reference (ToR) will be published,” stated CWI.
Speaking about the panel’s appointment, CWI Chairman Ricky Skerritt said: “The CWI is fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and fully independent panel agreeing to serve West Indies Cricket in difficult circumstances. I am especially grateful for their commitment to Lend some of your valuable time to this important review project.
“It is vital that players, coaches, administrators and all of us who love West Indies cricket recognize that creating a culture of sustainable learning across the organization is a prerequisite for player growth and team improvement. The CWI has repeatedly failed in decisions of this type in the past. I am confident that this independent World Cup review process will produce findings and learning that should be of great benefit to our cricket system going forward,” Skerritt said.
