ST JOHN’S – President of the West Indies Cricket Board Whycliffe ‘Dave’ Cameron last week continued on his initiative to meet with heads of government of the Caribbean to discuss matters regarding the development and improvement of cricket in the region.
Last Thursday he met and had discussions with Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves in Kingstown. One day later president Cameron met with Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr. Keith Mitchell in St George’s.
“These meetings are crucial in setting the framework with the political leaders of the region towards ensuring that they are fully briefed on all matters relating to the regional sport. 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 programmes and that they are aware of the challenges and difficulties which we face. It is also valuable to have their perspective on what they think are the issues regarding the sport,” noted Cameron.”
We shared thoughts, ideas and suggestions and at the next meeting of the Board, I will share with my team. We value the inputs as we are strategically looking to reposition cricket,” Cameron said.Cameron has also met Minister of Sport Stephen Lashley in Barbados, as well Jamaica leader, Portia Simpson-Miller, President of Guyana Donald Ramotar, Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Dr. Denzil Douglas and Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit.
