Regional manager wants a change in the four-day structure

Manager of the West Indies ‘A’ team, Colin Borde, has appealed to the West Indies Cricket Board, (WICB) to change the structure of the Regional Four-Day Tournament.



Borde’s appeal follows the conclusion of the four-day tournament, which crowned a new champions following Barbados’s lopsided win over Trinidad and Tobago in the finals.



He is insisting that the current structure is unfair and not conducive to good cricket.



Borde says format is not correct. He thinks Jamaica who won six consecutive games in the preliminary phase should have been crowned champions.



Borde says there is no need for a semifinals and a final.



Jamaica lost in the semi-finals to T&T, who have been very insistent throughout the season.



The current structure of the regional four-day tournament has a preliminary round robin format.



The top four teams then advance to the semi-finals with the first-place team facing the fourth seed in one semi-final and the second and third seeds in the other.

The winners then progress to the final.
