    Former West Indies captain Daren Sammy has been appointed as an independent non-member director of Cricket West Indies.

    His appointment was confirmed on Thursday 17th June 2021 and, according to CWI, is in keeping with two fundamental principles.

    Those are increased utilization of regional technical expertise and the implementation of a Cricket First Policy.

    Sammy has played over 14 years old international cricket, including leading the West Indies to back to back T20 World Cup titles in 2012 and 2016.

    He is one of three appointments of independent directors approved last Thursday.

    The others are Trinidadian Attorney Mrs. Debra Coryat-Patton and Jamaican Surgeon and University Administrator, Dr. Akshai Mansingh, who were both reappointed to serve a second term.

    All three appointments will expire in 2023.

    There is one more non-member director spot to be filled which CWI says it intends to do soon.
