Former West Indies captain Brian Lara and Mickey Arthur, currently Derbyshire’s head of cricket, are part of a three-man panel announced by Cricket West Indies to review West Indies’ early exit from the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. Justice Patrick Thompson Jr. will serve as chair of the group and will explain how and why the team was eliminated from the tournament so early.
West Indies failed to even qualify for the Super 12 of the mega event after suffering losses to Scotland and Ireland in the first round matches of the T20 World Cup. West Indies’ only win in the tournament came against Zimbabwe, but the same team made it through to the next round along with Scotland. Please tell that the West Indies team is a two-time champion. The team has won the title in 2012 and 2016.
The three-member panel has already started its work. According to Cricbuzz, Cricket West Indies has said, “The panel will present a report to the CWI Board of Directors with relevant insights and clear recommendations. It is also intended that this review will establish a process and template for future performance reviews.” Terms of Reference (ToR) will be published.”
Speaking about the appointment of the panel, CWI President Ricky Skerritt said, “CWI is fortunate that such a knowledgeable and fully independent panel has agreed to serve West Indies cricket in challenging circumstances. I would particularly appreciate this I am grateful for their commitment to contributing their time to the critical review project.”
