Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) president Conde Riley has vowed unstinting support for new Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Ricky Skerritt.

“This is not about Skerritt, Cameron or Riley, it is about cricket. The elections are over and it is time to move on.

“I am very comfortable and committed to regional cricket. I have to get help from Skerritt right now as we are negotiating for a (financial) facility, and we need to be calm and focused as to where we are going to take West Indies cricket,” said Riley.

The CWI director was speaking on the aftermath of the CWI presidential elections on Sunday when Skerritt defeated incumbent Dave Cameron 8-4 for the top post.

Riley defended the BCA’s decision to support the 47-year-old Cameron, who was seeking a fourth term as president. (MK)
