Cricket West Indies (CWI) says it plans to aggressively continue rolling back debt and streamlining its financial practices, in an ambitious bid to realise profits by 2023 and place the organisation on sound commercial footing.

An audited financial statement for last year shows losses of over US$13 million (J$1.9 billion) and prompted auditors KPMG to “cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern”.

He said the CWI had already managed to reduce borrowing, and while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present unprecedented financial challenges, it was hoped that within the next two and a half years the organisation could be in a sustainable position.
