ST JOHN’S – Cricket West Indies president, Ricky Skerritt said there was never any intention of the regional governing body to “hide” the contents of a recent audit report which had uncovered “illustrations of questionable executive standards and practices”.

In a statement late Sunday, Skerritt pointed out that the audit commissioned by his administration and carried out by accounting and management consulting firm, Pannell Kerr Foster (PKF), was for internal consideration only and thought had not been given to releasing it publicly.

He was speaking in the wake of a leak of the report, which saw international broadcaster and legendary former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding revealing sections of the document on a YouTube cricket show called Mikey – Holding Nothing Back hosted by Asif Khan.

Telling the host that he had obtained a copy of the audit report, Holding said CWI had been in receipt of the audit for some time but had chosen not to release it “for what reason I don’t know”. (CMC)
