JAMAICA'S Whycliffe 'Dave' Cameron will be the sole challenger against incumbent Dr Julian Hunte, when voting members of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) cast their ballot to select a president at its annual general meeting (AGM) in Barbados tomorrow.
They will also select a vice-president, a position for which only two persons have also been nominated.
The WICB confirmed the nominations via a release that was issued yesterday evening, noting that only Hunte and the long-standing WICB member Cameron were nominated for the position of president up to the deadline.
"The deadline for nominations to be received for the respective posts was Friday, February 22 of last week," the release stated.
Former West Indies captain, Clive Lloyd, had made a late attempt to to join the presidential race, but his bid was yorked.
According to a CMC report, at least two regional cricket boards refused to second his nomination by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB).
Lloyd was nominated by the GCB on Thursday ahead of Friday's deadline. However, under election rules, a presidential candidate must also be nominated by a second regional board.
The CMC report said Lloyd was expecting support from the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB), but on Friday the TTCB appeared to have had a change of heart.
"I have left it to them," Lloyd told TVJ in a telephone interview Friday night. "If they don't, well that's it. You know I will just leave it as it is. If I cannot get a seconder I can't say I have not tried to help our cricket and get it back on track."
Reports from Port-of-Spain suggest that the TTCB wants to remain neutral and not openly support any particular candidate in the run-up to the WICB elections.
Lloyd had also made attempts to seek a second nomination from another influential regional board.
"I sent something to Barbados," he said.
It is not the first time that Lloyd was attempting to become president of the WICB. His previous try was blocked on the grounds that he did not meet the residential requirement, since his home was outside the West Indies at that time.
Meanwhile, West Indies legend, the one-time great fast bowler, Joel 'Big Bird' Garner, is one of two persons nominated for the post of vice-president. The other nominee is Emmanuel Nanthan.
Each member association has two votes and there are 14 votes in total.
The voting members of the WICB are the shareholders and are as follows (in alphabetical order): Barbados Cricket Association, Guyana Cricket Board, Jamaica Cricket Association, Leeward Islands Cricket Association, Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board and Windward Islands Cricket Board of Control.
