Sammy appointed as member of CWI's Board of Directors

"All my local, regional and international experiences have prepared me to make a significant ongoing impact in West Indies cricket," said Sammy

Two-time T20 World champion Daren Sammy has been appointed as an independent non-member director of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) board for the next two years. The Board of Directors also approved a second term for Trinidadian Attorney Debra Coryat-Patton and Jamaican Surgeon and University Administrator Dr. Akshai Mansingh.

"It is an honour to be appointed as a CWI Director; this is another great opportunity for me to give my best to West Indies cricket in a new way, off the field," Sammy said in a CWI media release on Wednesday (June 23). 

"All my local, regional and international experiences have prepared me to make a significant ongoing impact in West Indies cricket. I am excited and thankful for the chance to serve and look forward to giving back to the sport and region that I love so much."

Meanwhile, CWI President Ricky Skerritt said: "I am delighted to welcome Daren Sammy as an independent, non-member Director whose role will be to ensure that all the right questions are being asked while contributing to the shaping of new ideas and solutions.

"Daren's fairly recent experience as a two-time World Cup-winning captain will bring with him a much needed modern-day cricketer's perspective which should add valuable insights to Board discussions and decision-making. His appointment is testament to our commitment to strengthen CWI's governance, and to utilise expertise from across all stakeholder groups."

Sammy is currently in the UAE as head coach for Peshwar Zalmi, who are set to take on Multan Sultans in the PSL 2021 final on Thursday. Apart from that, the former West Indies skipper will also serve as the T20 cricket consultant and the brand ambassador for St Lucia Zouks for the 2021 edition of the CPL.
