The Caribbean cricket podcast
Extra Edition: Talking to Dr Andrew Forde about the Caricom Review Panel’s Report on Cricket Governance in the Caribbean
Welcome to this special edition of The Willow in the WIndies.
With me for this extra programme is Dr Andrew Forde, who is a cricket writer, analyst and broadcaster, and a regular featured panelist on ‘Mason & Guests’, the weekly Caribbean radio cricket talkshow on VoB in Barbados.
He joined me to discuss the report on cricket governance in the Caribbean, commissioned by Caricom, who’s Review Panel has concluded and demanded the immediate resignation of the West Indies Cricket Board’s membership and the dissolution of the WICB (the panel’s report can be read here).
Dr Forde and I discussed the report, looked at the findings of the review, and asked if its conclusions were sound. We also examined whether the Review Panel and its report had actually addressed the most pressing concerns of cricket in the region, and whether it offered any solutions or merely voiced accusations.
