Cricket West Indies (CW) has failed to support former CWI President, Dave Cameron for the post of chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

CWI has not nominated anyone for the upcoming elections of the ICC chairman.

The ICC, after months of being undecided about how to go about installing a new chairman, finally settled on a path to achieve it. The council outlined that the first step was one whereby current ICC board members had given its membership until Oct. 18 to nominate candidates for the position of chairman. After that, the potential candidate must be seconded by another board member before the election is  held.

The ICC said that the candidates must be either a former or current ICC board member.

The USA Cricket Hall of Fame had written to CWI asking that they nominate the former president of the regional body, Jamaican Dave Cameron, 49, as chairman of the ICC.

But the CWI had indicated some time ago that CWI Vice President, Dr. Kishore Shallow had said his board did not nominate anybody for the post.

Cameron, who lost the post of president of what was then called the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to Ricky Skerritt in March 2019 elections – in which he was seeking a fourth consecutive term said although he is disappointed he feels it more for the regional cricket body.

Imran Khawaja will be the interim chairman of the ICC until the election is held for the post.

The decision was taken by the board last week after incumbent Shashank Manohar stepped down following two terms in the post.
