WEST INDIES CRICKET BOARD

WINDIES CRICKET

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is the governing body for professional and amateur cricket in the West Indies. It is a sporting confederation of over a dozen mainly English-speaking Caribbean countries and dependencies that formed the British West Indies. It was originally formed in the early 1920s as the West Indies Cricket Board of Control (and is still sometimes referred by that name), but changed its name in 1996. The Board has its headquarters in St. John's, Antigua and Barbuda.

The WICB has been a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 1926. It operates the West Indies cricket team and West Indies A cricket team, organising Test tours and one-day internationals with other teams. It also organises domestic cricket in West Indies, including the Carib Beer Cup first-class competition and the WICB Cup domestic one-day (List A) competition and Twenty/20.

The WICB's membership includes the 6 territorial cricket associations of the various countries and territories which contest the West Indies first-class and limited-overs competition in the Caribbean. The member associations are:

  • Barbados Cricket Association (BCA)
  • Guyana Cricket Board (GCB)
  • Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA)
  • Anguilla Cricket Association
  • Antigua and Barbuda Cricket Association
  • British Virgin Islands Cricket Association
  • St. Kitts Cricket Association (for the island of St. Kitts alone)
  • Nevis Cricket Association (for the island of Nevis alone)
  • Montserrat Cricket Association
  • St. Maarten Cricket Association (for Dutch Sint Maarten only)
  • United States Virgin Islands Cricket Association
  • Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB)
  • Dominica Cricket Association
  • Grenada Cricket Association
  • St. Lucia Cricket Association
  • St. Vincent & the Grenadines Cricket Association

Since 2005, as per an ICC mandate, the West Indies Women's Cricket Federation (WIWCF) has been integrated with the WICB.

The WICB is charged with aiding regional development of cricket in the Americas region, under the ICC's development program.
