Former West Indies Captain, Darren Sammy, OBE, has been appointed a member of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) board of directors following his appointment as an independent non-director by the  CWI board last week.
With more than 14 years of international cricket experience, Sammy is celebrated by many in the region and across the world, as an inspirational figure, renowned for leading the West Indies to back-to-back ICC World Cup titles in 2012 and 2016.
Sammy is an awardee of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II and a goodwill ambassador for St. Lucia.
He is also the head coach of Peshawar in the Pakistani Super League and a consultant for the St. Lucia Zouks in the Caribbean Premier League.
A CWI release said it is expected Sammy’ s appointment will add a fresh and more youthful perspective, as well as a high level of updated cricket know-how to enhance the existing experience in the CWI boardroom.
