And ensuring the franchise-based Professional Cricket League that Richard set up four years ago becomes an even more elite, professional environment.”CWI recently revamped its retainer contract system for players competing in regional competitions last month, but Grave argued there was a lot more work to be done before the Caribbean product could compete with the best domestic competitions abroad.  With the experience of already working in the region under his belt, Grave argued Pybus fit the role perfectly.“Richard is specifically coming in to work with our franchise teams, establishing the HPC in Antigua, and to allow us to produce better cricketers on the international stage,” Grave said.
