West Indies captain Brian Lara faces a probe into his stinging outburst at selection policies and pitch conditions during the recent Test series against India.
A four-member committee headed by West Indies Cricket Board president Ken Gordon would investigate Lara's comments after India won its first series in the Caribbean with a victory within three days in Jamaica.
The other members of the panel are Sir Alister Mc Intyre, former West Indies skipper Clive Lloyd and Gregory Shillingford.
"The Board considered at length the recent statements and actions of Mr Brian Lara during and after the conclusion of the fourth Test match versus India at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica.
It was agreed to appoint a committee headed by the President of the WICB, together with Sir Alister Mc Intyre and Messrs Clive Lloyd and Gregory Shillingford to investigate all matters relating to Mr Lara's statements and to take such action as they may consider appropriate after these matters are discussed with him," West Indies Cricket Board said in a statement.
"Mr Lara is currently away from the Caribbean, but it is expected that the committee will meet with him within the next two weeks."
