 News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Mar. 9, 2018: CARICOM leaders will meet with the International Cricket Council, (ICC), next month in London to discuss their recently adopted position on the future of West Indies cricket, as they step up pressure on embattled Cricket West Indies, (CWI), to restructure its governance.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, chairman of CARICOM’s Prime Ministerial sub-committee on cricket, will lead a small delegation of regional leaders, who will sit down with cricket’s world governing body in an attempt to convey the “desperate urgency” of the changes required.

According to Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, CARICOM leaders had adopted legal advice at the two-day Intersessional in Haiti last week, concerning CWI’s right to manage the “public good” of West Indies cricket.

The CARICOM delegation will use the occasion of the Commonwealth Meeting in London from April 16-20 to engage the ICC.
