There could be a three-way fight for the post of president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB)- the vote for which is scheduled for its annual meeting in St. Lucia on March 27.

Two contenders, former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd and vice-president Dave Cameron have already stated their intention to contest the post. Julian Hunte, after hinting that he would step down as president, has been reportedly influenced to seek a fourth successive term.

The incumbent Hunte has been in charge since 2007.

Lloyd the most successful West Indies captain has indicated his desire to be part of West Indies cricket once again, provided that the people in the Caribbean believe that he can make a contribution.

Lloyd, who is a former chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket Committee resigned from his role as non-member director of the WICB last February, citing concerns raised by some officials with regards to his role as head of the government-established Interim Management Committee for cricket in Guyana.

He represented the West Indies on the field from 1966 to 1985, while he served as an administrator from 1990 to Feb. 14, 2012 when he tendered his resignation. In 1971, he was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year.

Cameron joined the WICB as Jamaica Cricket Association director and has been Hunte’s deputy over the past six years.
