Risk management key to Windies 2022 success


Faced with a busy 2022 schedule amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Cricket West Indies says managing risk will be a key factor for the organisation over the coming months in determining the success of its international commitments.

Both the senior men and women’s Caribbean side have been active throughout 2021, and will be confronted with an even busier schedule in 2022, with the Women’s 50-over World Cup set for New Zealand and the men’s Twenty20 World Cup scheduled for Australia.

The Under-19 side, dubbed the Rising Stars, will also compete at the ICC Under-19 World Cup starting next month in the Caribbean, further adding to an already complex international itinerary for CWI.

However, chief executive Johnny Grave said the regional governing body was already braced for the challenges associated with staging multiple tours during a pandemic but believed it could do so while protecting the health and safety of players and officials.
