Monday 20th June 2011

 Decisions following June 17th meeting of WICB Board of Directors

 
 
 
Kingston, Jamaica – Following are decisions taken by the Board of Directors of the West Indies Cricket Board at the meeting of the Board in Kingston, Jamaica on June 17th.
 
West Indies Players Association
 
1.   The WICB will continue to treat WIPA, the representative body of the players, with the highest degree of respect and as a principal partner in West Indies cricket and will continue to engage WIPA on matters pertaining to West Indian players.
 
2.   However, given Mr. Dinanath Ramnarine’s threatening action towards the WICB Chief Executive Officer and the unprofessional conduct of Mr. Ramnarine during a recent meeting on June 14 2011, the Board will no longer engage with Mr. Ramnarine on any issue unless there is a change in his behaviour and conduct.
 
3.   It is the Board’s stated view that Mr. Ramnarine has not demonstrated any willingness to constructively dialogue with the WICB in the best interest of West Indies cricket.
 
 
4.   The Board has directed management to communicate with WIPA to this effect.
 
 
Chris Gayle
 
WICB Management reported to the Board that the attempts to discuss and resolve issues with Mr. Chris Gayle (as it pertains to his behaviour over the past months) ended inconclusively. The WICB Management will continue efforts to resolve the issues with Mr. Gayle.
