Dave Cameron – West Indies Cricket Board

Incumbent Dave Cameron and challenger Joel Garner will contest the elections for president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), at the Annual General Meeting carded for March 7.
Cameron, a Jamaican businessman, and Garner, a cricket legend and former West Indies pacer, are the only two presidential candidates after the deadline for nominations ran out on Saturday.
A statement released by the WICB Tuesday afternoon said Cameron and Garner were the only two nominations received.
Cameron is entering the contest with Windward Islands Cricket Board of Control president, Emmanuel Nanthan once again his running mate, while Garner’s running mate is Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board director, Baldath Mahabir.
The elections are shaping up to be a keen tussle between the two candidates and a major high point of the WICB AGM.
Guyana, Leeward Islands and Windwards islands have already declared their support for Cameron’s re-election, while Garner appears to be receiving the backing of Jamaica as well as Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.
Each of the six WICB associations is entitled two votes each.
Meanwhile Wavell Hinds, who ignored calls to step down at the height of an impasse with the West Indies Cricket team late last year, has been re-elected as president of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA).
Hinds, a former West Indies cricketer, was re-elected unopposed at WIPA’s annual general meeting at Hotel Four Seasons in Jamaica on Monday.
He was involved in a bitter row with former West Indies one-day international captain Dwayne Bravo, who raised concerns over his role in a signed collective bargaining agreement between WIPA and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
The dispute over the agreement led to the controversial decision by West Indies to cut short their tour of India.
The new WIPA vice-president is Nixon McLean, whose position was previously honorary treasurer, a release from WIPA said yesterday.
Wayne Lewis retained his position as honorary secretary; the new honorary treasurer is former West Indies captain and wicketkeeper, Ridley Jacobs, and the newly elected assistant honorary secretary is Windward Islands Volcanoes captain Liam Sebastien.
