Cricket meeting to discuss grievances

Tuesday May 14, 2019 Written by Published in Cricket

Cook Islands Cricket Association will be hosting a meeting this afternoon to clear the air on some of the grievances raised by the local clubs.

 

The meeting which will be held at the CISNOC head office in Nikao starting at 5pm is believed to look into the issue of the national cricket teams’ non participation at the Pacific Games.

It is also expected to clarify issues surrounding raffle tickets which were printed to assist in the teams’ fundraising effort for the Games in Apia, Samoa in July.

The meeting will be hosted by Cook Islands Cricket Association chief executive officer Davis Teinaki.

A club official said there were many disappointed officials and players who wanted to know the reason why the team was not traveling to Samoa.

The official added they hope Cook Islands Cricket would clarify all those issues during the meeting.

“There have been questions raised why the national men’s and women’s teams are not going to the Games and Cook Islands Cricket is calling this meeting to discuss that issue and explain the club officials of the reasons why this has happened,” the official said.

“Cook Islands Cricket also printed raffle tickets to help raise money for the teams’ participation at the Games. Since we are not going anymore, the meeting will also provide an opportunity to talk about what we can do about those raffle tickets.”

It is believed the national cricket teams failed to meet the CISNOC criteria set for the Pacific Games.
