What did the board say?
The board said they offered contracts to players that have achieved consistent performances for the West Indies throughout the evaluation period of April 1 last year to March 31 this year.
“To assist in our drive of towards a new fitness and conditioning culture, the CWI board of directors has approved our recommendation that the award of all-new West Indies men’s contracts this year will be conditional on each player achieving a minimum standard of fitness. This new policy will also be introduced to all men’s regional franchise contracts and West Indies Women’s contracts next year for the 2020-21 season.” – CWI Director of cricket Jimmy Adams
