Dissolve Current WICB and Implement Recommendations of the CARICOM Cricket Review Panel

This petition had 6,866 supporters


"In this regard, the Panel strongly recommends the immediate dissolution of the West Indies Cricket Board and the appointment of an Interim Board whose structure and composition will be radically different from the now proven, obsolete governance framework. These two key measures are absolutely necessary in order to transform and modernize the governance, management, administration and the playing of the game."- CARICOM Cricket Review Panel, 2015

Why Was This Petition Started?
On Sunday 3rd April 2016, Caribbean people at home and abroad were again inspired with fire in their hearts by the success of the West Indies Women's and Men's Cricket Team in the ICC World Twenty 20. Again, we are in the history books, in this new format of the game as the only team to have registered wins in the U-19, Women and Men Tournaments. 

At the post-match interview, winning Captain Darren Sammy, full of emotion, shared his disappointment in the WICB. A dark cloud of poor governance by the West Indies Cricket Board and the ongoing Players versus Board challenge have demoralised the Caribbean spirit, capture negative headlines internationally and marginalise some our of best cricket talent on the field.

What Is This Petition About?
This petition is a solidarity call to all Caribbean people, at home and abroad, to Rally 'Round De West Indies and lobby for the implementation of the Recommendations by the CARICOM Cricket Review Panel of which a significant part of this transformation includes the dissolution of the current WICB Board.
