Doing the Same things Over & Over with
the Expectation of having a Different
Result is Generally Described as
Insanity . This is precisely what the
Worst International Cricket Board has
been doing , and is now continuing to
do .

I WONDER WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FAMOUS

OR INFAMOUS , DEPENDING ON ONE'S

PERSPECTIVE ,THE WEHBY REPORT ?????

Cricket is a very Serious Business
that requires the Business of Cricket be treated very Seriously .

The people in the WICBC seem blithely unaware of this Fact .Unless there are very very serious changes in the Structure in the WICBC & the Regional Cricket Boards .
This would be akin to rearranging
the Chairs on the Deck of the Titanic . Most People I believe are fully aware of what happened to the Titanic .

Newdread had a thread asking about just that this yesterday. Meanwhile the cricket deteriorates with tasteless haste.

I told them ages ago - West Indies cricket cannot survive in tis neo-liberal environment.

This resembles the PATTERRSON RECOMMENDATION EXCEPT FOR THE SCRAPING OF THE PRESENT BOARD. They said all along that they are not going to scrap the Board and hand over cricket to some other body.

Look I seriously do not believe that
the WICBC is going to improve the status of Our Players in the International Cricket Arena .

I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THE

INFAMOUS " WEHBY REPORT " IS NOT

GOING TO BE RELEASED .


THE WICBC IS RUNNING VERY FAST , BUT

IT WILL FIND ITSELF IN THE SAME

FREAKING PLACE .

The WICBC is akin to a Cow , that has 90+ Tits to sustain its Members . This Folks is without even Counting Our Players Salaries .

SINCE NOTHING HAS BEEN STATED ABOUT

ITS 1908 STRUCTURE ; ONE CAN ASSUME

THAT IT AINT GOING TO CHANGE ITS

ARCHAIC STRUCTURE .

One thing that I am sure of , is that Our Standing in International
Cricket is NOT going to improve much
By my reckoning ,Too many mouths to Feed .

Then there is the Problem of money
to pay Salaries to our , Men &
Women Teams . I sincerely wish them
Good Luck .

In this Forum I have perpetually stated that Financial Sponsors do not associate themselves with Teams that are flounering at the Bottom , Quite
frankly :

FINANCIAL SPONSORS ARE ONLY GOING TO

ASSOCIATE THEIR BRAND WITH WINNING

TEAMS , THEY SURE AS HELL AINT GOING

TO GRAVITATE THEIR BRANDS WITH TEAMS

FLOUNDERING AT THE BOTTOM OF

INTERNATIONSL CRICKET .


The salient question is this ; Are
the Regional Governments going to
allow this 111 years old Cricket Board , that bluntly refuses to change its archaic Structure .

At some point , hopefully , sooner rather than later , there is going to a reckoning with regard to the
WICBC Stewardship of West Indies Cricket ; and I believe that it aint going to be Pretty for the Worst
International Cricket Board in the
Commonwealth .

Do you think that because of the present structure of the leadership of West Indies Cricket, that the players are not performing on the field as they ought to? When each player is selected, does he or she says to him of herself or among each other, "this 111 year old structure does not allow me to go on the field and play to win. I need a different captain in order for me to play better cricket. The spin bowler is not effective therefore I as a batsman cannot score runs. The batsman at the other end is doing his own thing therefore I will see where the ball is going before I respond to his call. The fast bowler is bowling too many bumpers against the opponent therefore I cannot concentrate on my own batting. If I had better coaches, I would not drop so many catches. If I bowl, bat, field better, The 111 year old structure will claim the success I may obtain., therefore when the structure changes, I will do better."

If the players do not perform, they are not in a position to demand a change in the structure of West Indies Cricket.If the team is not winning, there is nothing to sell to the investors . If the players do not take pride in their performances, there is nothing to showcase to would be sponsors and supporters. What is the new structure going to market"

I am curious to know what is in the WEHBY report. The WICB never said it would be made public. However, could it be that what this new administration is taking into consideration the contents therof? Again I say the actions of this Board resemble what is coming out of the recommendations of the Patterson report, except for the handing over of the management of cricket to a different body.

Too many committee's there, why would you need an NOC Committee?

 
camos 2019-07-02 11:53:25 

there must be a committee to handle all those committees .

 
POINT 2019-07-02 13:00:53 

Perhaps You are unaware of the fact
that the WICBC was formed in 1908 , this is over 100 freaking years Ago .

IT HAS BLUNTLY REFUSED TO CHANGE ITS

OVER 100 YEARS OLD STRUCTURE . THIS

IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT ITS OCCUPANTS

ARE STRIKEN WITH PLANTATION

MENTALITY SYNDROME , IN THIS

INSTANCE , AKA PMS .

In this very Forum I have truthfully
described how WE got to where WE
CURRENTLY ARE TODAY .Interestingly
none of my Critics in this Forum can
factually produce evidence that what
I have stated is a Figment of my Imagination .

Let Me for Your benefit restate how
WE got to where WE are . There are
2 salient factors that propelled Our
Players to Dominate International
Cricket .

1. DUE TO THE PROXIMITY OF OUR

REGION GEOGRAPHICALLY ; MOST OF OUR

PLAYERS WERE EMPLOYED PLAYING LEAGUE

& COUNTY CRICKET IN ENGLAND .


2. THE INTERNATIONAL TOUR SCHEDULE

IN THAT ERA ALLOWED VISITING TEAMS

TO PLAY MATCHES VS COUNTIES &

REGIONAL TEAMS BETWEEN THE TEST

MATCHES . THOSE MANY MATCHES SERVED

TO HARNESS & HONE THE SKILLS OF OUR

PLAYERS AND ALSO MADE THEM SUPREMELY

FIT . DESPITE THE FACT THAT IN THE

REGION THERE WAS NO REGIONAL CRICKET

LEAGUE .


ONE OTHER VERY IMPORTANT POINT WITH

REGARD TO TOURING TEAMS IN THAT ERA

IS THE FACT THAT TOURING TEAMS GOT

ACCLIMATIZED TO THE PITCHES ; THE

BOUNCE OF THE BALL ; AND THE

WEATHER.


THE DEATH KNELL OF WEST INDIES

CRICKET STARTED WHEN ENGLAND DECIDED

TO LIMIT OVERSEAS PLAYERS FROM

PLAYING IN ENGLAND .

This obviously had a more severe impact on the competitiveness of Our
players who played Cricket in England when not representing the
Region .

THEN THE ICC DECIDED TO CHANGE THE

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET SCHEDULE , NO

LONGER WOULD TOURING TEAMS PLAY

MATCHES BETWEEN THE TEST MATCHES &

THE OTHER FORMATS OF THE GAME .

OBVIOUSLY THESE TWO FACTORS THAT I

HAVE CITED SLOWLY BUT SURELY

WEAKENED THE COMPETITIVENESS OF OUR

PLAYERS IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA .


HISTORY INFORMS US THAT THE PEOPLE

IN THE WICBC SAT ON THEIR ASSES AND

DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING .

Ouite frankly THEY failed to fully
understand the impact these 2 very
important factors would have on the
competitiveness of our Players in
International Cricket .

ROUGHLY 8 YEARS AGO IT DAWNED ON

THE INCOMPETENT PEOPLE IN THE WICBC

THAT THEY NEEDED TO HAVE A REGIONAL

CRICKET LEAGUE .


BTW THE 111 YEAR OLD STRUCTURE OF

THE WORST INTERNATIONAL CRICKET

BOARD IS STILL IN VOGUE .

There are several examples of where some of those Committees could be merged...

If you have a Cricket Committee why aren't all things cricket related dealt with as agenda items at that Committee:

NOCs
Umpires & Referees
International Fixtures

Why do you need a HRD Committee AND an Executive Performance Review Committee?

Audit, Risk & Compliance AND Finance - surely, at least for a supposedly cash-strapped organization, those Committees can be merged?

Why do you need three separate Task Forces to review the areas being reviewed:

Governance
Selection Policy
High Performance System Implementation

Can't you put together the best and brightest to review all three?

This looks like a full-blown government bureaucracy...

In reply to jelfew

Please find out what methods were used
by Our Former Players who were in charge of the shortest version of the
Game that made Our Players in this version of the Game , to win 2 consecutive WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN
THIS VERSION OF THE GAME .

Now this actually happened it was not
a mirage . When the WICBC got control
of this version of the game , they fired those FORMER PLAYERS .

I am firmly of the opinion that the
WICBC was not happy about the fact
that those former Players Stewardship was so successful .

I have not heard that the WICBC , thanked those Former Players for their Services , or even had a Dinner in their honour for their
Stewardsship of the shortest version
of the game .

WORSE YET THE MANY FRAUDS IN THE

REGION WHO MASQUERADE AS SPORTS

JOURNALISTS HAVE SAID NART A WORD .

I WAS NOT VERY SURPRISED , SINCE

THEY ARE AKIN TO BEING THE WICBC

POODLES .
