President of Cricket West Indies Ricky Skerritt says he is not prepared to engage in political battles ahead of the regional cricket board’s elections and annual general meeting slated for March 28.

In fact, Skerritt said his focus is currently on the field of play with a hectic schedule on the cards for West Indies players involved in the Regional Super 50 tournament and Sri Lanka’s tour of the Caribbean in Antigua.

“I always feel good about West Indies cricket but I’m really not in the mood to talk any politics right now. Leave the fanatics to talk for the time being. With some cricket going on right now, I don’t want to participate in any political discussion that might somewhat distract from the cricket. I am not worried about anything, other than cricket right now,” Skerritt told NATION SPORT yesterday when contacted by telephone.

The team of Skerritt and Dr Kishore Shallow is seeking to gain a second term in office after defeating Dave Cameron and Emmanuel Nanthan by a vote of 8-4 in 2019. They will be up against secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board Anand Saenasie who is running for president and Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) vice president Calvin Hope.
