ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC):

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.
