St. John's (Antigua), July 17 (IANS/CMC) The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has announced plans to recognise outstanding curators around the region.

The WICB has approved a recommendation for an annual award at its board meeting in Antigua over the weekend, reports CMC.

A Board statement did not provide a timeline or venue for the first award but promised to reveal details once the structure of the award is approved.

The Board approved a recommendation for an annual Curator's Award for the most outstanding regional curator, the statement said.

The WICB meeting also reviewed a proposal to appoint a Regional Chief Curator who will be responsible for the oversight of the preparation of all international pitches and outfield.

WICB says the appointment of a Chief Curator is necessary to ensure the required standards are maintained.

This initiative is projected to have attendant benefits such as training and education of and knowledge transfer among national curators in the region, the WICB said.

A further projected benefit is the improvement of pitches for First Class matches.
