Regional leaders briefed on cricket

WICB President Dave Cameron.

Newly-elected President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Dave Cameron has been meeting with Caribbean prime ministers to discuss the development of the game in the region.

Cameron described the series of meetings as “crucial” in setting the framework with the leaders of the region towards ensuring that they are fully briefed on all matters relating to the sport.

His comments follow his latest round of talks with St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves in Kingstown and Prime Minister of Grenada Dr. Keith Mitchell recently.

“It is critical that we at the West Indies Cricket Board keep the leaders of each of our countries informed with regard to our plans and programs and that they are aware of the challenges and difficulties which we face,” he said.

Since being elected, Cameron has either paid courtesy calls or met with Prime Minister of Jamaica Portia Simpson-Miller, President of Guyana Donald Ramoutar, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Denzil Douglas and Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit. He also met with Barbados Sports Minister Stephen Lashley.
