WICB silent on ICC reforms

first_imgWest Indies Cricket Board (WICB) marketing and communications manager Carole Beckford says that the body will not be drawn on speculation about the future of West Indies cricket should the International Cricket Council (ICC) go ahead with its proposed changes regarding team membership.Under these proposed changes, full members of the ICC would have their statuses reviewed every five years, after which, a decision will be made about their membership. Associate members would have their statuses reviewed every two years, and affiliate membership would be scrapped altogether.An email, which was circulated among ICC members, said full membership status is not permanent and “a full member may be reclassified as an associate member upon the recommendation of the Membership Committee, where it fails to meet the retention criteria.”Another proposal being suggested is that the ICC will withhold funding from members unless they provide information on their finances, as well as how it is spent.It is believed that these measures would put pressure on teams, such as the West Indies, that have been struggling with match results for a number of years.NO NEED FOR SPECULATIONHowever, Beckford told The Gleaner that these are only plans and nothing has yet been decided as a meeting will first need to take place between the council and each member, associate and affiliate team. As such, she says the WICB sees no need to be drawn on speculation at the moment as no decision will be made before such a meeting.The West Indies Test team is currently ranked eigth of ten teams in the world as at February 13, while, as of February 22, its One-Day International side is ninth of twelve ranked teams in that format. The West Indies Twenty20 team is fourth of 17.last_img read more

SHEARER CLASS FOR DONEGAL’S IVAN SCOTT AS HE STUNS NEW ZEALAND WITH ANOTHER VICTORY

first_imgDONEGAL’S World record lambshearer Ivan Scott scored his biggest competition win outside Ireland and the UK with a stunning upset victory in the New Zealand Corriedale Championships final at the Canterbury Show in Christchurch yesterday. It was a massive leap for the 33-year-old from Kilmacrennan who hadn’t won a competition in New Zealand since the 2008 Northern A and P Show in Rangiora.Having shorn in New Zealand every summer since he was 19, Scott has, however, twice broken the World eighth-hour strongwool lambshearing record. He is the current holder with 744, shorn when he claimed the record back from Hawke’s Bay shearer and former World and Golden Shears champion Cam Ferguson in January 2012 at Opepe Station, just east of Taupo.His win yesterday was based on the quality of his 10 sheep in the pen judging, where he was more than 4pts better than anyone else in the six-man final.His ultimate winning margin of 1.299pts was all that stood between 47-year-old defending champion Rakaia shearer Tony Coster and a unique treble on a day when Coster was presented with a small trophy marking his acclaim as a Master Shearer.  SHEARER CLASS FOR DONEGAL’S IVAN SCOTT AS HE STUNS NEW ZEALAND WITH ANOTHER VICTORY was last modified: November 15th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ivan ScottkilmacrennanNew Zealandsheep shearing championlast_img read more
