…….WICB President Hunte
By Orin Davidson
“Clive Lloyd is a director and a very valuable asset to West Indies cricket, that is why when I took over as President I asked him to become a non elected director of the Board,” Hunte said, eliminating speculation that Lloyd was replaced due to performance.
The President also put to rest talk that the West Indies team’s most successful captain ever was fully in charge of the team that toured South Africa including the coaches.
A well publicized letter
before the recent South Africa tour purporting to carry out a mandate
by the Board was misconstrued, the President added.
“Clive Lloyd is an icon and we have lots of plans as far as Clive Lloyd is concerned as we put we together out strategic plan for the development of West Indies cricket.”
“As I speak to you I know our board depends on his contributions a lot, he has been retained by me to ensure he gives the Board the benefit of his experience,” the President stressed.
But he was hesitant to explain why 18 Board directors make all the cricket related and other decisions in West Indies cricket.
“The board sets policies, the administrative arm of the Board carries it out. The management carries out policies which the CEO and his team executes,” he stated.
Hunte also disclosed that Trinidad team manager Omar Khan who took over from Lloyd as WI manager, will be given a long run.
“What we have done with the appointment of Mr Khan is to settle the appointment of the manager of the team on a regular basis,” he said stating that the position will not have tour by tour holders any longer.
And Hunte stressed that new coach John Dyson does not have the heavy authority his predecessor Bennett King had, which included team selection veto powers..
“The coach deals with the technical aspects of the team,” Hunte pointed out without going any further..
looks after matters off the field and the coach deals with matters
on the field. I am not going to compare of contrast what happened
with Bennett King”.
