A member of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) has slammed the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for its failure to properly notify them ahead of last night’s town-hall meeting at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.

The meeting, the first of a series being held by the WICB throughout the Caribbean over the next three months, was poorly attended.

But a clearly disgruntled Winston Stafford, a BCA board member, criticized Cameron and his team for failing to give the local body timely notice.

“One has to ask the question, if the BCA has the responsibility for cricket in Barbados, should we not have been informed of the planning of such a function so we could get our members along and those who play cricket in Barbados along to meet with the members of the WICB?” he queried.

Stafford said the BCA found out about the event through a public statement on Monday evening during a board meeting.

“We found out on Monday evening during a board meeting. Not to the BCA, but a public statement.”

“This is not very good and it is not the first time that we have been treated in this manner,” he complained.

He further insisted that the BCA only officially received notice about the meeting earlier this week.

In his response, Cameron apologized for the miscommunication.

“Let me on behalf of the WICB apologize to you Mr Stafford and the BCA. My understanding was that all communications were being sent to Director Garner [Joel] and Director Smith [Deighton] as members of the Board of Directors and members of the BCA,” he explained.

“Again we apologize for that. It was never the intention of the WICB to have any meeting in any territory without the knowledge of the local cricket boards.”

    For WI cricket to go forward, Cameron needs to go forward and out through the door. He brought WI cricket disrepute in a big way.
