[www.inewsguyana.com] – Vice President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Emmanuel Nanthan has hailed the recent draft proposals adopted by the International Cricket Council as a savior in West Indies cricket.
The WICB has supported a new proposal from the International Cricket Council (ICC) which was approved at the Board’s meeting in Singapore on Saturday.
“West Indies had budgeted deficits of US$20 million and $12 million for the last two years. Over the next eight years we will have surpluses and play more regional and international cricket,” he told GrenadaSports.
“West Indies will play India, Australia and England more than we played them in the last eight years. It’s a saviour for West Indies cricket, not a letdown at all,” he said.
The revamp plans for the ICC, piloted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia (CA), won the support of eight Full members. The cricket Boards of Pakistan and Sri Lanka abstained from voting.
