Holding sceptical CWI directors will endorse Wehby Report

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Fast bowling icon Michael Holding has not held out much hope for the implementation of some of the major recommendations arising from the recent Wehby Governance Report.The 66-year-old, now a well-respected international television analyst, said while he was happy with the review of the governance of West Indies cricket, he was worried the Cricket West Indies (CWI) board of directors would be reticent about adopting the proposals, especially those which threatened their own existence.Holding argued that if directors had the success of West Indies cricket at heart, they would be motivated to put the development of the game before their own well-being.“I have absolutely no problem with the recommendations that are coming from these committees,” Holding said during an interview on i95FM Radio here.“I’ve seen them on so many occasions but my question always is: are they going to be taken on board? Are the board members going to vote for some of [themselves] to stay home?“I doubt it very much because a lot of those people in my opinion are not there to help West Indies cricket; there are there because they think it’s a big deal to be a part of the West Indies cricket board. “If you’re not offering anything, if the board is not functioning as well as it should, you should be able to look at yourself and say ‘listen, we need to change this’. Even if I am one of the people that have to stay home, if this is going to produce something better [that should be the approach].“That’s what they should be there for, to look at things that will produce something better, not to be worried about whether I won’t go to the next meeting or if I won’t be part of the board. “But every time these recommendations come forward I get the impression that’s what people are thinking.”An independent task force, headed by Jamaican businessman Don Wehby, was charged by Cricket West Indies with reviewing the governance structure of the regional body, and recently put forward several proposals aimed at “improving the governance of CWI”.Among the recommendations was a significant downsising of the current CWI board of directors from 18 to 12, and the inclusion of at least two women.In another potential blow to the CWI bureaucracy, the task force also proposed the reduction in the number of CWI committees from 12 to five.The outspoken Holding questioned the rationale of having two directors from each territorial board, pointing out the system did not allow for proper representation to take place.“You have a ridiculous situation – you have two people coming from a region and there’s an issue on which to vote at the board level,” Holding pointed out.“Now if you’re representing Jamaica or Barbados or Trinidad or anywhere, you are supposed to be taking a mandate from the people in your country. You are not supposed to be going in there with your own impressions and your own thoughts and your own thinking about this thing.“Both members are supposed to go to that board meeting and vote for what the mandate is from their board and I know on many occasions you have people that will go to a meeting to vote on an issue and one will vote ‘A’ and one will vote ‘B’. How does that make sense?”CWI president Ricky Skerritt said last week the Wehby Report was currently in the hands of directors and hoped it could be approved and implemented.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)NEW ORLEANS — If not for Anthony Davis’ determination to dominate inside for most of his 40 minutes on the court, the New Orleans Pelicans could have been blown out by the New York Knicks.Davis scored a season-high 43 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, and New Orleans overcame an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat New York 129-124 on Friday night.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college UP NEXTKnicks: Wrap up a three-game trip in Orlando on Sunday night.Pelicans: Host Denver on Saturday night.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title “We just couldn’t come up with those rebounds at the end,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said. “We get them to miss the shot, but we don’t come up with the loose ball.

He said change had more to do with his curiosity about how that smaller lineup would play together than trying to create specific matchups against New Orleans. The Knicks played at a faster pace and surpassed their 106 points-per-game average with nearly eight minutes left. That showing apparently earned the lineup another look, despite the loss.“After tonight I can’t switch this one up,” Fizdale said. “I have to give them a chance to see if they can keep some consistency.”TALL BALLDavis said he and Randle were determined to get into the paint for shots and rebounds late when the Knicks remained with a smaller lineup.“I really hate settling against smaller guys, so I just tried taking it inside, trying to get Julius to do the same thing,” Davis said. “There was nobody who could stop both of us on the inside. We just tried to make an effort to get down low and just punish them.”last_img read more
