Secretary Wayne Lewis said WIPA had held extensive discussions with Cricket West Indies over the tour, and were convinced the protocols were consistent with what had been executed on recent previous tours.
“We’ve had absolutely none (worry over protocols) because [they’re] the same exact protocols as what transpired in England and also in New Zealand,” Lewis told Starcom Radio’s Mason and Guest cricket show.
“We’ve had extensive meetings with Cricket West Indies and their team and our team led by our Dr Andre Cooke who guided us throughout that process because we’re not medical doctors.
“We have no skillset for that so we had our doctor who sat in on all those meetings and we had extensive conversations about everything.
“Cricket West Indies are sending a doctor to ensure and enforce all the protocols so we have no real concerns. We expect everything will be adhered to and therefore we feel very comfortable that the guys will be protected.”
