Mumbai:  Ricky Skerritt, the new president of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) wishes his team be known only as West Indies and not just the Windies. 

Speaking exclusively over telephone from the Caribbean island, he said, "the fans of the West Indies team and the people of our region have asked for the actual name of the team to be returned to "West Indies". 

 

"Windies is a brand name that will still be used commercially, but selectively". 

"The name of the board was changed a few years ago from West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to Cricket West Indies (CWI). That will not change", he further added.
