Former Windies team manager challenges Dave Cameron for CWI presidency
London, Feb 22 : The former West Indies team manager Ricky Skerritt has announced his intention to challenge Dave Cameron for the position of Cricket West Indies (CWI) presidency.
The 62-year-old will run for the election alongside Dr Kishore Shallow, who is an entrepreneur and director of CWI. The nominations of both these candidates were supported by the Leeward Islands Cricket Board and Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board.
After six years as president, Dave Cameron's intention to implement sweeping changes to the democratic process of decision-making within West Indies cricket is troubling. His desire to lead CWI as a full-time executive is not reflective of the West Indies cricket ethos, ESPNcricinfo quoted Skerritt, as saying in an official statement.
By advancing his plans for an autocratic leadership structure, which marginalises the role of commercially recruited executives, the incumbent has placed his personal thinking diametrically opposed to the values of West Indies cricket.
The Cricket West Indies elections will take place in Jamaica on March 24.
