ST JOHN’S, Antigua - Cricket West Indies (CWI) in collaboration with UNICEF concluded the organization’s first medical conference in 10 years in December 2019.

This is the second major development initiative brought back by the Cricket department led by Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams under the Skerritt-Shallow administration, following last month’s appointment of Chris Brabazon as Coach Education Manager

Persons in attendance included a range of professions from physicians, physiotherapists, strength and conditioning coaches, sports psychologists and sports nutritionists.

Specifically under the leadership of Dr. Oba Gulston, CWI Manager Sports Medicine and Science, this medical conference coincided with the adoption of the new CWI fitness policy, which has the mantra of putting players first.

“At CWI, we have been placing increased emphasis on player fitness and health and this medical conference was an important development as we continue to drive the philosophy of putting players and cricket first,'' said Gulston.

“Every sporting body and cricketing nation will have meetings like this annually or biennial, where updates on policies, new science and standardization of practices are discussed because it is also crucial to receive feedback from practitioners.

Jamaican doctors Donovan Bennett and Akshai Mansingh have returned to the Cricket West Indies (CWI) medical panel after vacating their respective positions 18 months ago due to disagreements with the previous administration.

Dr Bennett, who has agreed to retake the role as the medical panel chairman, said the change of heart came about after Jamaican Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron was ousted by Kittitian Ricky Skerritt in the CWI president race in March.

“My reason [for previously resigning from the panel] was the interference in the operations of the medical panel by people who didn't have the expertise so to do,” Bennett, the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) first vice-president, said during a telephone interview yesterday.

Only days before that Mansingh had stepped down as a panel member, telling the Observer that an “untenable” working relationship with the board — mostly borne from incidents he viewed as obstructionist — was his reason.

Orthopaedic surgeon Mansingh, who is also named a non-member director on the CWI board, declined to provide details when contacted yesterday, but did confirm accepting both roles.
