PRIME MINISTER Dr Keith Rowley has bemoaned the state of cricket in the Caribbean, and has accused certain members of the region’s governing body, West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), of being “hell-bent on destroying West Indies cricket.” Rowley was speaking on the CNC3 Morning Brew yesterday morning where he spoke on the lack of involvement by CARICOM (Caribbean Community) in West Indies cricket.

In November 2015, a CARICOM cricket review panel, appointed by the Prime Ministerial Committee on the Governance of West Indies Cricket, recommended the WICB be dissolved and all current members resign.

But, in May 2016, Antigua/ Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne openly rejected the call for the dissolution of the WICB, saying that move “would be to plunge WI cricket into further chaos and confusion.” Yesterday, Rowley pulled no punches when it came to his take on the sport regionally.

PM Rowley is in the best position to do something and he must start with the TTCB.

That shameless pig posing as PM of Antigua and Barbuda is acting like the 16th century tribe leaders who sold their subjects to the British slave holders for mirrors and gadgets

If Antigua openly and scornfully defies CARICOM, they should face economic and political sanctions including, travel bans and trade restrictions.

For the TTCB he can block funding, conduct audits of its "leaders" and use his bully pulpit to encourage the public to boycott TTCB activities until they agree to a fair constitution that allows for a democratic and transparent organization.

Totally agreeing with him, I have posted similar statements many times, happy that he as PM could come out with those statements, hopefully it might lead to some positive changes towards the improvement of WI cricket.

If Rowley and the other Caricom board members want change, they first have to get a Caricom friendly candidate to challenge Cameron in the next election, then lobby hard in the different Islands to give the candidate a good chance at winning, basically they have to run a campaign. These guys have to start organizing and stop complaining.
