Cameron blames WI board for team’s loss

Former Cricket West Indies President, Dave Cameron said that the changes made by the current board to management of the West Indies team were not beneficial.

The West Indies has bowed out of the World Cup after losing five out of its eight matches, with a record of two wins and one ended in a no-result.

Cameron said he is disappointed with the results which he blamed on the new changes to the management.

When Ricky Skerrit took over as President of CWI, Richard Pybus was immediately removed as the coach and Floyd Reifer was appointed as interim coach. The board then set up a task force to work on recommendations to improve the selection set-up and installation of a Head coach.

CWI Director, Johnny Grave said very soon the board will advertise the position of the head coach and chief executive officer that will be given a fair chance once they apply.

Cameron noted that Pybus was in charge of the West Indies team earlier this year that defeated England to retain the Wisden Trophy and also drew the Colonial Medical Insurance Cup 2-2.
