Success will be ‘one-off’ unless CWI governance changes: Mitchell

(CMC) – Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has warned that unless there is a change in the current administration of Cricket West Indies (CWI), instances like last weekend’s shock win over England in the opening Test will remain one-off occurrences.

Speaking in the wake of the Windies’ crushing 381-run victory inside four days at Kensington Oval, the veteran leader argued that sustained success on the field could only be achieved by proper leadership and management, and a governance system “that promotes the interests of the players”.

“We have seen West Indies perform well in a particular game in the past but as one who understands the game well, I know you cannot make a final judgement on the performance of a team by one game,” Mitchell said.

“As they say in areas of intellectual activity, maybe that’s a one-off. I don’t like one-off. I like it to be clear there’s a permanent change in attitude.”

He added: “As I have said over and over, unless the administration changes, I do not think we will see the kind of performance we need to.”
