JCA pulls back support for Garner

Things just got even harder for Joel Garner in his bid to become president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

The tables have turned in Jamaica, with news that the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) voted this evening 67-22 at it’s Annual General Meeting in favour of supporting fellow countryman Dave Cameron in his bid to retain the presidency of the WICB.

The move comes just two weeks after the JCA, led by president William “Billy” Heaven, initially voted 10-6 in favour of Garner, the former West Indies fast bowler and president of the Barbados Cricket Association.

That decision sparked an outcry within some sections of the JCA, leading to a no-confidence motion being brought against Heaven.

And while that motion was not successful, the big story was that its members voted to overturn the decision made by the JCA’s directors just weeks ago.

With Cameron already said to have the backing of the Windwards Islands, Guyana and the Leewards Islands, it now means that he has the support of four of the six territories ahead of the March 7 elections which will take place when the WICB holds it Annual General Meeting at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.

Garner is receiving support from Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

    It was on the cards . WI cricket going no where for a long time , so let it continue down the drain on its merry way . No unity no love , its all about $$$$$. The Caribbean is like its sister nation Africa , fight , fight, fight . Grab each other by the BALLS and cause much pain .
