CWI to act on Wehby Report

St John’s – Cricket West Indies has described a special board meeting last month focussing on the Wehby Report, as “an important step” towards the implementation of the long-awaited governance reforms.

The meeting, chaired by CWI president Dr Kishore Shallow, came as the new administration continued its push to act on the reforms put forward by Jamaican Senator Don Wehby and his five-member committee three years ago.

Shallow, who was reelected unopposed last March to succeed Ricky Skerritt, said CWI would, in coming weeks, dialogue with territorial boards to further accelerate the process surrounding reforms.

“The need for governance reform within Cricket West Indies has been a long-standing call, and we are acutely aware of its importance,” Shallow said in a statement Tuesday.

“The Wehby Report offers us a roadmap to a more efficient, transparent, and accountable organisation. We are committed to delivering on this commitment, ensuring that CWI operates at its full potential and sets a standard for good governance in the cricketing world. . .” (CMC)
