Legends call on Cameron’s WICB to step down
ST.GEORGE'S, Grenada, CMC):
West Indies cricket legends are demanding the "immediate resignation" of the Dave Cameron-led West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), in line with the recommendations of the WICB/CARICOM Governance Review Panel.
The legends are also insisting on the establishment of an interim board and the creation of a new structure to replace the WICB and manage the regional game.
In a statement released after a meeting in Grenada, the legends called for the WICB to honour a promise that it made to accept the recommendations of the WICB/CARICOM Governance Review Panel.
WICB had given a commitment to implement the recommendations during a meeting with the legends, and CARICOM chairman Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell in Grenada year ago, but has since been accused of reneging.
"We the legends call on the WICB to honour its solemn promise to Caribbean prime ministers in April 2015 to accept and implement the recommendations of the WICB/CARICOM Governance Review Panel - the immediate resignation of current directors, the establishment of an interim board, and the design of a new board structure," the legends said in a statement released late Monday.
Legends participating in the meeting at the Spice Island Beach Resort last Thursday were Sir Gary Sobers, Sir Wes Hall, Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Andy Roberts, Deryck Murray, Charlie Griffith, Desmond Haynes, as well as former West Indies players Dinanath Ramnarine and Roger Harper.
