Cricket West Indies (CWI) President, Ricky Skerritt and his running mate Dr. Kishore Shallow have both officially announced their re-election bid for a second two year-term from 2021-2023.

According to a release from the Skerritt-Shallow team, both candidates received nominations from the same two territorial boards who fist advocated for their candidacies in 2019, the Leeward Islands Cricket Board (LICB) and the TT Cricket Board (TTCB).

The Skerritt-Shallow duo has also received formal advice of support from the Windward Islands Cricket Board (WICB) and predicts similar support from the Jamaica Cricket Association.

The elections will take place on March 28.

In February, Anand Sanasie, secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board and Calvin Hope, vice-president of the Barbados Cricket Board, announced their desire to challenge for the positions of president and vice-president respectively.

In announcing their re-election bid, Skerritt said that he will continue to lead the fight for organizational modernization, including greater transparency, accountability, and partnership with all stakeholders, designed to support and prepare for achieving the best possible on-field results.

The incumbent president said he and Dr. Shallow would also continue to battle against petty boardroom politics and territorial insularity, two of the biggest enemies of West Indies cricket progress.
