KINGSTON, Jamaica — Ricky Skerritt and Dr Kishore Shallow have been elected as the new president and vice-president, respectively of Cricket West Indies (CWI).

The election took place at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston a short while ago.

It is understood that Skerrit, the current head of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Association, secured eight of 12 votes, leaving Jamaican Whycliffe 'Dave' Cameron with four.

Commenting on the victory, Skerrit said:“I am humbled and deeply honoured to be elected as president. We pledge to work for improvement on and off the field for West Indies Cricket.”

His running mate Dr Shallow was also thankful, stating: “I am grateful and humbled by the support of the members of the territorial board. This is a victory for West Indies Cricket.”

Skerrit, a former tourism and sport minister of St Kitts and Nevis, along with Shallow, prevented Cameron and his vice-president and running mate, Emmanuel Nanthan, from securing a fourth consecutive term in office.

The proceedings were done under the watchful eyes of international audit firm, KPMG.
