Former West Indies cricketers Ramnaresh Sarwan and Philo Wallace have been named on a six-member Task Force to look into the selection systems for Cricket West Indies (CWI).

The two will join vice-president of CWI, Dr Kishore Shallow, director of cricket Jimmy Adams, CWI director Enoch Lewis and cricketer Miles Bascombe on the committee.

CEO of CWI Johnny Grave recently said that a Task Force was put in place to deal with selection systems.

The last Windies selection panel headed by Courtney Browne was fired and was informed that they could re-apply for their positions after the Task Force made recommendations to the board.

Browne, Travis Dowling, Lockhart Sebastien and Eldine Baptiste were axed from the panel.

Since then Browne and Baptiste are arguing they were illegally removed and plans to take legal action.

Grave said the Task Force was not put in place to get rid of anybody but was put together to bring “our structure in line, with international standards.”
