The West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) has congratulated Ricky Skerritt and Dr. Kishore Shallow on being re-elected president and vice-president of Cricket West Indies last Sunday.

Skerritt and Dr. Shallow were returned unopposed at the CWI Annual General Meeting (AGM) for a second two-year term.

WIPA President and CEO, Wavell Hinds stated: “We would like to congratulate Messers Richard Skerritt and Kishore Shallow on their re-election to the offices of president and vice-president respectively.

“We look forward to continue meaningful work with CWI for the betterment of players welfare, the development of the game and the advancement of West Indies cricket.”

The re-election of Skerritt and Shallow was always on the cards once their challengers Anand Sanasie of the Guyana Cricket Board and Barbados Cricket Association, Calvin Hope, dropped out of the race a week before the April 11 AGM, which was postponed from March 28 due to a lack of quorum.

The GCB and the BCA came under heavy criticism from other territorial boards — the Jamaica Cricket Association, the Windwards Board, the Leeward Islands Cricket Board and the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board — over their controversial move.

Shallow, president of the Windward Islands Cricket Board, said the victory was one for the development of West Indies cricket.
