Legendary batter Brian Lara and experienced head coach Mickey Arthur have been named in a three-member independent panel assembled by Cricket West Indies (CWI) to conduct a comprehensive review of the West Indies early exit from the Men's T20 World Cup in Australia.

West Indies, the T20 World Cup champions in 2012 and 2016, couldn't enter the Super 12 stage of the tournament after defeats to Ireland and Scotland in their first-round matches in Hobart, apart from a win over Zimbabwe.

CWI said the losses caused great disappointment and frustration among all West Indies cricket stakeholders. The West Indies' early exit from the tournament saw Phil Simmons step down from his role as head coach too.

Lara, currently the head coach of IPL side Sunrisers Hyderabad and Arthur, working as the head coach of county side Derbyshire, will undertake a holistic assessment of all aspects of the team's preparation and performance at the global tournament in a panel chaired by Justice Patrick Thompson Jr, a high court judge at the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.

The three-member panel, who have already started their work, will submit a Report to the CWI Board of Directors, with relevant insight and clear recommendations. It is also intended that this review will establish a process and template for future performance reviews.

The objectives of the three-member Group will be to: conduct a thorough and independent review of the West Indies Men's T20 Team's preparation and performance; engage in an inclusive interview exercise with as many stakeholders as practicably possible through methodology which ensures that all contributions are heard, recorded, valued and respected.

The group will also conduct interviews, in person or virtually, of all key stakeholders, including selectors, team members, management staff, board directors, management, high performance unit, cricket analysts, former players, territorial boards and franchises and the Caribbean Premier League.
