The Zone team takes a closer look at Sir Viv Richards claim that electing Skerritt would bring respectability back to the post of CWI president. 

A Cricket West Indies (CWI) press release has refuted claims in an ESPN Cricinfo article that its president, Dave Cameron, asked for an increase in his monthly expenses and that this is exorbitant. 

With a Cricket West Indies (CWI) election just about a week away, the Dave Cameron-led organization is having to clear the air over the sacking of former coach Phil Simmons. 

Former Windies captain, Sir Vivian Richards, arguably one of the greatest batsmen of all time, has thrown his support behind Ricky Skerritt and Dr, Kishore Shallow, in their bid to win the presidency of Cricket West Indies.

Dave Cameron, in an interview with the SportsMax Zone, has come out to say his challenger for the post of Cricket West Indies President, Ricky Skerritt, is not correct in suggesting his dictatorship style is reason to vote him out.

President of the Guyana Cricket Board Anand Sanasie has questioned whether the team of Ricky Skerritt is experienced enough to lead Cricket West Indies into the future.

The Guyana Cricket Board’s Anand Sanasie has taken umbrage at remarks made by CWI presidential candidate, Ricky Skerritt, who criticized the GCB for not giving him a chance to make his case as to why he should be the next president of the CWI.

Ricky Skerritt believes Cricket West Indies is too busy fighting fires to focus on developing the sport in the region.

Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) president Conde Riley has insisted the organization followed the rules in coming to its decision to support incumbent Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron.

The organization’s stance has come under fire in recent weeks, with a contingent led by former BCA board member Hartley Reid starting a petition to review the board’s position.

In stating his objections to the board’s decision to support Cameron, Riley has pointed to concerns regarding a lack of democracy and fairness.  Riley has, however, insisted that the board came to its decision via a vote and welcomed any challenge that showed a violation of the organization’s policies.

 

“The process that we followed is set out in our rules.  The board met and the board made a decision, there were no other nominations.  We have no problem with listening to Mrs Skerritt and Shallow.  We made the decision as a board, not Conde Riley,” Riley said in an interview with the SportsMax Zone.

“The rules permit us to so do.  We put it to a vote.  We know how many people supported it, nobody was against it and we know the abstentions,” he added.

“If one of our membership decides that he is aggrieved and he can show where the BCA did not follow the letter of the law, in terms of our rules, then he can get the petition it’s not a problem it’s a democratic process.”

Cameron and challenger Ricky Skerritt, a former Windies cricket team manager, will square off for the leadership of CWI later this month.  Barbados, Guyana and the Windward Island have announced support for Cameron, while Trinidad and Tobago and the Leeward Islands seem to be in line to support Skerritt.  Jamaica has indicated that they are yet to decide on the issue. 

Julian Charles, President of the St Lucia Cricket Association, has said there was no need for change in the CWI administration because, after years of struggle, Windies cricket is finally heading in the right direction.

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. 

CWI boss Dave Cameron accuses challenger Ricky Skerritt of being a bad Windies team manager.  Skerritt was quick to hit back in the war of words.
