The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has been given a US$3 million financial boost by signing an agreement with the International Cricket Council (ICC) under the Targeted Assistance and Performance Program (TAPP), which is aimed at developing more competitive teams in international cricket. Under its program, the WICB will be awarded US$3 million.
The funding will aim to provide enhanced support to the current elite West Indian players and future generations.
“We are delighted to be signing a TAPP agreement for this enhanced agreement with the ICC and are grateful for this enhanced support to help WICB achieve our high performance objectives,” said Julian Hunte, WICB president.
“We have started to make progress on the field over the past year and this support will allow us to build on that by investing more resources than ever in the development of emerging talent in the West Indies,” he said.
