Advance perception of a hit is among eight proposals put forward by the task force scrutinizing the West Indies cricket team’s contentious desertion of its India tour in October, 2014. CMC reported that the schemes contained in a report distributed to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) on Saturday which also includes those aimed at improving player connection with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and team management, and gaining personal player development.
The task force report said that a new CBA should hold a supply such as is contained in prescription relating to crucial services to the upshot that before the withdrawal of tour or any other industrial activity be taken that a short period of notice be given by the WIPA to the WICB of any industrial activity examined by the WIPA or the players as a result of an identified dispute.
They said that they would endorsed that a identical provision be put into the individual player’s contracts. This would preclude any situation as occurred in India. Contravention of such a condition would be a contravention of contract.
To deal with the controversial issue of tour contracts, the task force report suggested that the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) dispense contracts to players three weeks foregoing to any tour, with the players required to resubmit the signed papers one week before the tour. The report said that the failure to return a signed contract will ineligible the player from selection on the team.
The task force also called on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to build baluster of trust and respect with the players who are the Board’s staffs, with the WIPA and senior players playing key roles, a simplification of the Caribbean team management construction with clear roles for coach, manager, and captain and the recruitment of a sports psychologist on a retainer basis.
The task force has suggested the WICB print and affair a staff handbook to the WIPA and every player selected for West Indies duty and hold bonding conclave two times in a year with players and team management, to foster tuneful relations.
