ST JOHN’S: Cricket West Indies (CWI) began its 91st year yesterday, with a new name and website as part of a comprehensive rebranding programme.
From yesterday the West Indies Cricket Board will be renamed Cricket West Indies and formally recognise all representative teams as the WINDIES.
CEO Johnny Grave, commented: “Cricket West Indies better reflects how the organisation operates, as there are many different stakeholders who we work in partnership with, under the unifying aim of improving cricket at all levels within the region.”
The WINDIES name has long been associated with the representative teams within International cricket and this new brand will be used on all team playing shirts along with a new website focused on providing all WINDIES supporters more user-friendly information including live scores, team updates, videos and player information.
The new website is www.cricketwestindies.org and the new match centre will launch on www.windiescricket.com ahead of the first International T20 against Afghanistan tomorrow.
