Cricket West Indies (CWI) has set deadlines for consultation and implementation of the recommendations of the Wehby Report on the governnance of West Indies cricket, the first being October 16.

According to a CWI release, that is when the reading of the report and consultation process should be completed.

The proposed way forward was approved by the CWI board of directors following a presentation by president Ricky Skerritt of a board paper entitled “Governance Reform Report – Next Steps”.

The paper called for the CWI board of directors, territorial boards and their members, and all stakeholders, to do all that is possible to stimulate, encourage and facilitate the reading, discussion and consultation of the report which was widely distributed on August 17.

According to Skerritt, Senator Don Wehby has offered to make himself and other Task Force members available to provide explanations and facilitate discussion on the report’s findings, if needed.

The paper encouraged all stakeholders to engage in any consultation they deemed necessary to help pave the way for implementation.

The release stated that the first October 16 deadline would depend on the ability of territorial boards to effectively consult with their membership under the Covid-19 group gathering protocols.

During the same period, CWI will be seeking advice on legal processes and actions that would be required to implement the recommendations of the report.

The Board paper also calls for final feedback from CWI board members and territorial Boards to be documented and submitted to CWI by the middle of November.

Any resulting suggestions and decision-making, including actual resolutions for change of Articles, should be completed by November 26 and put before an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) which CWI hopes can take place face-to-face by the middle of December, 2020.

President Skerritt said: “There will be Covid-19 related timing challenges, and likely political head-winds ahead, but I assure all stakeholders and lovers of West Indies cricket that I will personally champion the important process of CWI Governance Reform, no matter how long it takes, now that CWI has received and distributed such a pragmatic and do-able cricket-centric report from Senator Wehby and his team of highly-qualified and experienced advisers. Hopefully good sense will prevail, and CWI will show the world that we are serious about modernisation and improvement.”
