by Sanjay Myers (Jamaica Observer) Former Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron is calling for unity among the territorial boards as Vincentian Dr. Kishore Shallow gets ready to take charge of the regional governing body.
Shallow’s path was cleared on Friday after Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) boss Wilford “Billy” Heaven announced his withdrawal from the CWI presidential race set for Antigua on March 25.
Ricky Skerritt, who has led the CWI since he defeated Cameron at the polls in 2019, had declared his intention to leave the post at the end of consecutive two-year terms.
“Shallow has opposition, clearly, because other people nominated Billy,” said Cameron on Friday, “but he needs to find a way to ensure that he brings all these other boards on-board.
“Don’t try to alienate them, but bring them on-board to ensure that he can improve West Indies cricket. He needs to find a way to get everybody on board and buy into his vision,” the former CWI boss told the Jamaica Observer.
