THE NO. 2 MAN at the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) is batting for the No. 1 post.
Conde Riley, the BCA’s first vice-president for the past six years under Joel Garner, will offer himself for the top post when the local governing body holds elections at the 11th special meeting of members on August 14.
A member of the BCA’s board of management since 1996 and chairman of several committees over the past decade, Riley handed in his papers a few hours before nominations closed yesterday at 4 p.m.
When contacted, Riley, who is also running for first vice-president, said a combination of factors influenced his decision.
“A number of board decisions have not been carried out. That goes against the grain of good corporate governance. Board decisions cannot be changed without subsequent approval of the board. I don’t like being part of things like that,” Riley told WEEKENDSPORT.
