West Indies Cricket: John Dyson sacked

The Executive Committee meeting of the West Indies Cricket Board Inc., which took place on Wednesday (13.8.09), decided to sack John Dyson, the coach of the West Indies cricket team, with immediate effect.

Though the decision follows the West Indies cricket teams humiliating defeat at the hands of the perennial International cricket minnows Bangladesh, observers believe that John Dyson is a scapegoat in the contract dispute between the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies cricketers.

The West Indies Cricket Board by failing to assign a reason for the abrupt sacking of John Dyson has given further credence to these rumours.

The WICB also announced that the Assistant Coach David Williams will replace John Dyson on a temporary basis during the upcoming International Cricket Council’s Champions Trophy limited-over’s tournament to be played in South Africa in September and October.

The former Vice Captain and off-spinner of the West Indies cricket team, Lance Gibbs has been appointed the Team Manager for this tour.
