CWI's head curator calls for more respect for regional colleagues

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Karen Madden

Questions have been raised in recent times about how the Caribbean region can improve the game of cricket, and one place to start is with the pitches. 
However, Cricket West Indies (CWI) regional curator Kent Crafton, says even though there has been development, territorial boards need to play a greater role in supporting local curators who are sometimes not given much respect.

CEO of Sabina Park Holdings, Anthony Walter admits to the faults of the complex, and pointed out that COVID-19 has rescued some of the mission.

Walter pointed to the struggles Sabina Park has had to endure just to maintain the facility. Former West Indies fast bowler, Kenny Benjamin slammed what he labelled as selfish territorial boards.

Meanwhile, Crafton believes groundsmen are not given enough recognition by the boards. Crafton and Benjamin were speaking on Hitz 92 FM, Sports Grill recently with Simon Crosskill.
