Third vice-president of the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB), Patrick Rampersad says that bringing in former West Indies team psychologist into Cricket West Indies (CWI) as a director makes no sense at the moment.
Guardian exclusively reported earlier in the week that Caricom has asked CWI to bring Dr. Webster on board as a director. The regional body is yet to make a decision on the request. However, the vocal Rampersad thinks that it makes no sense bringing in the 78-year old medical doctor. “Listen Caricom has had their say about the administration of West Indies cricket. Asking CWI to bring in Dr. Webster at this point in time makes no sense. I think if they have questions as to the administration of the sport in the region, they should sit together with the board and come up with a solution that will benefit the sport.
“What is needed is dialogue between all interested parties and in this way we can get something positive coming out. I have nothing against Dr. Webster but I really think that will not make any sense. Caricom has to foster a better relationship with the board and then they can make a difference. They want to attack the board and then sends a request for Dr. Webster to be onboard. This is not the way to go and Caricom needs to understand that they must first try to mend their relations with the board and then the two bodies which are regional, can then sit down and work together for the betterment of all.
