Reid: Right on!
A former Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) board member, who was vocal in insisting that new Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Ricky Skerritt should have been allowed to make a presentation to the local governing body, is expressing delight at the result of Sunday’s elections.
Hartley Reid, who led a group of concerned members in starting a petition to get an extraordinary general meeting to have an input on the BCA’s position on the elections, is also disappointed that not many of Barbados’ great cricketers added their voices to the debate ahead of the poll.
Reid’s reaction comes in the aftermath of Skerritt’s 8-4 win over three-term president Dave Cameron during CWI’s elections in Jamaica, where the former West Indies team manager’s running mate Dr Kishore Shallow was elected vice-president with a similar margin of victory against Emmanuel Nanthan.
In the lead-up to the elections, it was revealed that the BCA had committed its support to Cameron and Nanthan after turning down an invitation from Skerritt and Shallow to have an audience with the BCA board. (HG)
