Key moves from WICB
The board of directors of the West Indies Cricket Board met in St Lucia during the weekend and reached a number of decisions. Among these was the approval of recommendation to offer a renewal of contract to West Indies manager Richie Richardson and coach Ottis Gibson, pending completion of negotiations which are expected to be concluded shortly.
The board indicated receiving a report on the latest developments on the situation in Guyana and expressed pleasure with the progress being made and the movement towards the normalisation of cricket administration in Guyana.
The board approved a recommendation to tentatively schedule one of the West Indies versus Pakistan Test matches and two rounds of Super50 and Regional 4 Day matches for the Guyana National Stadium pending the normalisation of the situation in Guyana.
The Test match is slated for July and the Super50 and 4 Day matches will be after the break in the season which is scheduled for March 12th to 20th.†
