Newly installed CWI President Ricky Skerritt is to create a Selection System Review Task Force, to be chaired by Vice President Dr Kishore Shallow to comprehensively re-evaluate the selection system.

Despite early successes at the helm of the Windies, interim head coach Richard Pybus, could face one of the falling axes from a new administration, led by president of Cricket West Indies (CWI), Ricky Skerritt. 

Windies all-rounder Marlon 'Icon' Samuels has insisted former CWI president Dave Cameron has never been the man for the job and insists his motives were purely selfish.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and former Windies coach Mr Phil Simmons have announced an amicable resolution to the claim from Simmons’ dismissal as head coach in 2016.

Former West Indies Cricket team manager Ricky Skerritt has been appointed as the new president of Cricket West Indies (CWI) after securing the necessary votes at the association’s Annual General Meeting, at the Jamaica Pegasus on Sunday.

By the official count, Skerritt and his running mate Dr Kishore Shallow defeated incumbents Whycliffe ‘Dave’ Cameron and Emmanuel Nanthan by an 8-4 margin.  Unofficially, it is reported that Skerritt and Shallow managed to secure the support of Trinidad and Tobago, Leeward Islands, Windward Islands and Camron’s home nation Jamaica.  The incumbents Cameron and Nantan are believed to have received the support of Barbados and Guyana.

The result ended a three-term spell for the Jamaican, which spanned a six-year period.  Cameron was first elected to the office in 2013 when he toppled former St Lucian diplomat Julian Hunte, to whom he had served as vice-president from 2007 until he took office.  During his tenure, Cameron has been credited with implementing improved retainer contracts for players and officials, restructuring the regional competitions and improved relations with the West Indies Player’s Association (WIPA).  On his watch, the Windies team while struggling in the world rankings, claimed two T20 world titles, and the women’s and youth titles. 

Heading into the election the Kittitian Skerritt had painted the incumbent as not having enough of a pro-cricket stance with his governance and failing to commit to the establishment of term limits.   

Cricket West Indies President Dave Cameron is denying that the close relationship between the West Indies Players Association and Cricket West Indies serves as a way of ostracising players who may not be happy with the way the region's governing body is handling affairs that affect them. 

People living in the Caribbean will soon be really able to say they own a piece of West Indies cricket after the organisation’s president, Wycliffe 'Dave' Cameron has come out to say the organization is working on a plan that will see it headed toward becoming a listed company in another two years. 

Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) president Conde Riley, in announcing support for incumbent Dave Cameron when the elections for president of the Cricket West Indies takes place on March 24 in Jamaica, has also dismissed conspiracy claims by challenger Ricky Skerritt. 

Challenger for the presidency of the Cricket West Indies Ricky Skerritt, is hopping mad over what he calls outdated governance structures within the organization he wants to run. 

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) have both issued statements offering messages of condolence to the family of veteran cricket writer Tony Becca who died in hospital on Thursday.
