Legspinner Rawl Lewis will continue as captain of the Windward Islands team after an emergency meeting organised by the region's cricket board managed to resolve differences between him and team manager Lockhart Sebastien. Lewis had announced his resignation on January 26 after Windward's 166-run loss to Trinidad and Tobago in the regional four-day competition.
However, at an emergency meeting of the Windward Islands Cricket Board , Lewis was asked to reconsider his decision, the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) reported. Sources told CMC that Lewis' decision was not only prompted by the team's string of defeats but also by the strained relationship with Sebastien, which worsened after the defeat in Trinidad.
At the meeting it was decided that Sebastien should avoid making public statements that were not in the players' best interests. The meeting, which was attended by board president Emmanuel Nanthan and chief executive Lennox Grant, took place after the separate discussions with the management team and the players.
Windward Islands' play Combined Campuses and Colleges in Barbados in the fourth round of the regional competition, which starts on January 30.
