THE MAN seeking to become the new vice-president of Cricket West Indies (CWI) is not convinced about the improved relationship between the regional governing body and the West Indies Players Association (WIPA).

Dr Kishore Shallow, president of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association and the running mate of presidential candidate Ricky Skerritt, says the relationship between CWI president Dave Cameron and WIPA president and chief executive officer Wavell Hinds is not reflective of the true state of affairs.

“We have been misled to think there has been a great relationship between the two bodies because of the relationship between Dave Cameron and Wavell Hinds. We obviously know better. What is important is that we offer our players a sense of security,” Shallow said during a discussion forum hosted by the University of the West Indies (UWI) at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination on Monday night.

“And let me give an example. The selection of the team for the recent T20 series did not go down well. At the very last minute, some T20 specialists, who would have made plenty of sacrifice, put in hard work, were told they were not playing because we are keeping this group of players. That cannot help the relationship between the board and players.
