My simple question to you is what is he doing....what exactly is he directing 'to happen'

Jimmy is not a miracle worker.

WI cricket needs a miracle worker....If Jimmy is not one then he has to go....and one must be found.

Adams has been on the job for 5 years....why is he getting a free pass? In my opinion WI cricket has declined even further in the last 5 years

Leave Jimmy alone, and go after Shallow Skillett who is in way above his head.

BTW, I've never been a fan of Jimmy Adams, but I just think there's bigger fish to fry.

Why should he get a free pass?
Just for For being INVISIBLE and QUIET?

Jimmy will oversee and manage all cricket matters to include development of all teams, all coaching and cricket education and other technical programmes. He will have the support of an Operations department.

Totally agree.
Shallow Skillett inherited teams and coaches who has just won tournaments, he got rid of all the coaches.
The regional boards are all part of the problems.Lets look at each board.
BCA: with its history, has not produced a solid batsman since Dessie
TTCB: only have Lara's memory
GCA: Too much infighting and politics
JCA: Seem to be asleep
WINDWARD: Need organizational help, it is time for these islands to represent themselves.
LEEWARDS: Need organizational help, it is time for these islands to represent themselves.

I prefer to look at the product at the regional level, seeing CWI got rid of the learning centre

So Jimmy has absolutely no responsibility or accountability?
In your opinion he is doing a great job? Everybody else screwing up but not Jimmy?

Amazing

I've never looked into the role of cricket director.

No one even remembers there is a cricket director.
He is quiet and invisible..apparently has no accountability.

Do you know what strategies are currently being formulated by the Director of CWI to bring WI back to an acceptable performance level? Do you know what timeline the Director of CWI is working with? How many years did this downhill spiralling of WI cricket continue before the current Director came on board?


Do you know?

Do you? If you are Jimmy I will tell you that you are CLUELESS and only masquerading as a director of cricket.

I am seeing a continuing spiral downwards....

Are the strategies state secret?

Do we have to wait for 25 years because the spiral started 25 years ago?

Did Adams ever make public a 5 or 10 year plan?

IS THE DIRCTOR ON CONTRACT? If yes, for how long? 25 years? Lifetime?

Who does the director report to? Does he have to report to ANYONE?

Name any significant achievement of the director in his 5 years to date.

Looks like coach et al are just following the MO of the director...achieving NOTHING

ICC should investigate WI cricket....

Was Jimmy DOC when we won the T20 WC, the women trophy and the U19 championship?
Did he got rid of the coaches and selectors, immediately after Skirret and Shallow was elected?

Adams fired Bennett in Jamaica and the team has not won since.
