Skerrit: Chip in
ROSEAU – CARICOM chairman, Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, urged regional leaders to be less confrontational than they have been previously in addressing the parlous state of West Indies cricket.
A number of regional prime ministers have been vocal about the present state of the game in the region with the Grenada Prime Minister, Dr Keith Mitchell, and St Vincent the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, leading the charge for reform of the West Indies Cricket Board.
Antigua Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne has come out to bat for the sport’s regional governing body, however, in defiance of his colleagues, as well as a damning joint CARICOM/WICB report which called for the dissolution of the WICB.
Skerrit said the reaction of his counterparts on the issue was their passion for the game boiling over and a strong desire to see the West Indies men’s team, in particular, be far more competitive. (CMC)
