Dujon not surprised at Lloyd rejection

Former West Indies wicketkeeper Jeffery Dujon says he was not entirely surprised when news broke that former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd did not get a second nomination for the post of president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

According to Dujon, Lloyd became unpopular with members of the board after he decided to chair a Guyana government-led cricket Interim Management Committee (IMC), which traversed on the autonomy of Guyana Cricket Board (GCB).

"I guess it must have something to do with the fact that Clive came out in favour of what the WICB was not in favour of," Dujon told Star Sports.

"Therefore, it was not surprising that he would have trouble in a race for the presidency of the board, as he did not have that much popular support," he added.

The IMC was set up by the Guyana government after it claimed that there was widespread corruption at the GCB.

The claims included misappropriation of funds and fraudulent internal elections.

The GCB has denied these claims, however, saying that the IMC was set up in a bid by the government to take over the running of the country's cricket.

The stand-off led to Guyana, at the time, struggling to field teams in regional tournaments, and condemnation from the International Cricket Council.

The WICB elections will be held later this month with incumbent vice-president Whycliffe 'Dave' Cameron taking on incumbent president Dr Julian Hunte.
