Cricket West Indies (CWI) has established an independent group with the purpose of carrying out an in-depth analysis of the West Indies’ showing at the Twenty20 World Cup.
After suffering defeats at the hands of Scotland and Ireland throughout the competition, the defending champions were unable to advance past the first round of the Super 12 competition.
Brian Lara, a former captain for the West Indies, and Mickey Arthur, a former coach for both Pakistan and Sri Lanka, have been nominated as members of the independent panel.
“CWI today announced that the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Review Group will undertake a holistic assessment of all aspects of the team’s preparation and performance at the global tournament,” read the official statement. “CWI today also announced that the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Review Group will undertake a holistic assessment of all aspects of the team’s preparation and performance
Mickey Arthur, a South African international cricket coach; Justice Patrick Thompson Jr., a High Court Judge at the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court; Brian Lara, a West Indies batting star and the current IPL T20 Head Coach; Justice Patrick Thompson Jr., who will serve as Chair of the Group.
After suffering surprising defeats at the hands of lower-ranked teams such as Scotland and Ireland, the West Indies squad was unable to advance to the Super12s phase (the second round).
All parties involved in cricket in the West Indies felt a significant deal of disappointment and despair as a result of the losses.
Bellerive Oval in Tasmania, which is located in Tasmania, was the location of the Group B qualification round. There, the squad recorded their lone victory over Zimbabwe, a side who qualified ahead of West Indies by winning both of their matches against Scotland and Ireland.
The three-person panel will provide the Board of Directors of the CWI with a report that contains insightful information as well as specific recommendations.
A procedure and a model for conducting performance evaluations in the future are both envisioned to be developed as a result of this research.
Ricky Skerritt, the President of the CWI, made the following statement in response to the appointments: “The Cricket West Indies Board (CWI) is in the fortunate position of having such a knowledgeable and completely independent panel agree to serve West Indies Cricket despite the difficult conditions.
I am very thankful to them for agreeing to contribute some of their valuable time to the critically important project that we are reviewing.”
“It is imperative that all of us who love West Indies cricket, including players, coaches, and administrators, recognise that the establishment of a long-term learning culture throughout the organisation is a precondition for the development of individual players as well as the advancement of the team.
I am confident that this independent review process of the World Cup will produce findings and learnings that should be of great benefit to our cricket system moving forward. In the past, CWI has repeatedly failed because of decisions that were based on emotions and made in a knee-jerk manner “he added.
