“Coming up in May this year, the Board will host its annual review (retreat) with the players, WIPA, selectors and the technical team to review player, management and technical plans. We want to see how we can find common ground in ensuring that the best players in the region are available for selection for West Indies teams,” Cameron said in a statement.

West Indies became the first team to clinch the World T20 title for a second time after beating England by four wickets on Sunday night.
