PORT OF SPAIN – The West Indies Cricket Board and the various territorial boards will soon establish a Memorandum of Understanding to formalise their relationship.
WICB chief executive officer Michael Muirhead, speaking to the Trinidad and Tobago media yesterday, said he would like to see cricket at all levels have a structure that feeds into a programme that can sustain itself.
“We do have that with the Kiddy Cricket programme, the grassroots, the Under-13 Under-15, Under-17, Under-19 and going all the way to the Test level. What I think will concretise that, would be establishing the MOU with the various territorial boards within some structure and that is one of the achievements I would like to see happen,” he added.
Muirhead also said he wanted to expand the high performance programme.
“I am looking at expanding the high performance aspect within the West Indies Cricket Board…not necessarily having another High Performance Unit to mirror exactly what is in Barbados, but having almost a feeder programme of high performance centres in all the territories which will ultimately feed into the one in Barbados,” he explained.
