Newly appointed CEO of the West Indies Cricket Board Michael Muirhead has commended the senior men’s and women’s teams for achieving the targets set out by the sport’s governing body.

In a congratulatory message to the team Monday, Muirhead said winning the tournament was a specific target for 2014 in the WICB five year strategic plan, CMC reports.

 

“Now that through the outstanding work of the players and the Team Management we are ahead of our goals,” said Muirhead who replaced Ernest Hillaire as CEO at the start of the month.

 

“We will need to review and readjust and look to retain the title in 2014, even as we are cognizant that the other cricketing powerhouses will be leaving nothing to chance as they too prepare.”

 

The West Indies played with passion and commitment to defeat Sri Lanka by 36 runs in a remarkable final at the Premadasa Stadium.

 

The New CEO notes that the start of his tenure coincides with renewed expectation among Caribbean fans.

 

“I am honoured to be entering West Indies cricket at a time when the region is enthused about the game and the prospects,”said Muirhead said.

 

The new CEO also commended the Windies Women for achieving one of the stated WICB objectives of finishing in the top four of each of the World Cups and World Twenty20s held between 2011 and 2016.
