Cameron said it was part of the WICB’s plan to engage directly with the regional public on the issues facing the game in the region.

“We believe the public town-hall meeting is a great way to hear what people across the Caribbean have to say about the important issues facing their game,” he said.

“It presents a great opportunity for our stakeholders to learn more about initiatives which the WICB is working on at this time.”

He added: “We want to restore the public confidence in the WICB and we can only do this if we talk to our public – the fans, sponsors and our governments.

“We are looking to engage in open, honest dialogue with the public, so we encourage all to attend and actively participate, as we seek to rebuild West Indies cricket together.”

The first town-hall meeting will take place in Lecture Theatre 1 on the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies, starting from 7 p.m.

Plans are already under foot to stage a second public town-hall meeting just prior to the first Test between West Indies and Australia in Dominica. Further details will be disclosed at a later date.
