Ricky Skerritt set to be elected for second term as Cricket West Indies president

Rival Anand Sanasie along with Calvin Hope withdrew from the election race

Ricky Skerritt and his deputy Kishore Shallow are set to be elected for a second term to lead the Cricket West Indies (CWI) board. The development comes after the rival pair of Anand Sanasie and Calvin Hope announced on April 1 that they were withdrawing from the contest, thus paving way for Skerritt and Shallow to be elected “uncontested.” A formal announcement will likely be made on April 11, the date to which the CWI annual general meeting was recently postponed.

The CWI board elections were originally meant to take place on March 28, but were deferred owing to “lack of a quorum” after representatives from the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) and the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) did not show up. Incidentally, Sanasie was the GCB secretary until March 29 before being unseated by a rival faction, lead by Bissoondyal Singh. Hope, meanwhile, is a vice-president at the BCA.
