Cricket West Indies (CWI) has appointed a four-man committee to review the organization’s selection criteria and policy.
CWI Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams, the former West Indies middle-order batsman, is part of the committee that is chaired by Enoch Lewis and will comprise former West Indies opener, Philo Wallace and CWI Vice President, Dr. Kishore Shallow.
Adams confirmed its existence and suggested the timing of the establishment of this committee was coincidental to the widespread discussions stirred by the selection of the West Indies team for the Oct. 17 to Nov. 14, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
Adams said the selection panel has acted for two years and the feeling was let us have a review of the two years to see if ‘”we are going in the right direction.”
Chief Selector Roger Harper and his team have come in for criticism from different quarters for the omission of certain players based on them failing CWI’s fitness criteria.
The use of fitness exemptions for some players had also been questioned.
