The Chief Executive Officer of the WICB, Michael Muirhead, says former bowling consultant, Sir Curtly Ambrose, was not sacked as previously reported by regional media.

Muirhead says the Antiguan worked on a tour to tour basis and his contract was simply not renewed following the successful T20 World Cup campaign.

Sir Curtly described the news as both shocking and disappointing.

But according to Muirhead, Sir Curtly was chosen for a specific purpose.

Muirhead says It was never really envisaged at that point to be a permanent job but it evolved and he remained with the team on every tour.
