Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) president Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven and Jamaican business executive Don Wehby have been drafted into the newly selected Cricket West Indies (CWI), as the body looks to improve its financial standing.

In keeping with a part of his mandate to establish good governance principles and greater transparency, newly appointed CWI president Ricky Skerritt has made several new appointments since taking office.

Heaven, who recently secured a third term as president of the JCA, will serve in the capacity as chairman of the CWI’s finance committee.  Wehby, a former Jamaica finance minister and Grace Kennedy CEO, will head a task force on corporate governance.

Other changes from Skerritt, who defeated Dave Cameron in the CWI elections last month, included the appointment of Robert Haynes as interim head of the chairman of selectors last month.

The CWI also removed interim head coach Richard Pybus and his support staff of Vasbert Drakes, Toby Radford and Esuan Crandon. Former West Indies batsman Floyd Reifer was named to replace Pybus, while Roddy Estwick, Corey Collymore and Rayon Griffith will serve as assistant coaches.

 

The Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) will, in short order, be advertising for the post of a head coach for the Jamaica Scorpions after losing Robert Haynes to regional duty. 

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) have both issued statements offering messages of condolence to the family of veteran cricket writer Tony Becca who died in hospital on Thursday.

President of the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA), Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven, says the new year will bring with it, a new head coach for the Jamaica Scorpions, a local one.
