CRICKET: WICB president holding firm

Published:Friday | February 6, 2015 | 1:23 PM

President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Dave Cameron, says he is not too concerned by developments surrounding the recent decision by the directors of Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) not to support his candidacy for re-election.



Cameron says it's not Jamaica that isn't supporting his run for presidency, but instead only some members of the board of directors.



The directors of the JCA, at a board meeting on Tuesday, voted 10-six to support the candidacy of Barbadian Joel Garner.



Jamaican Cameron is seeking a second two-year term in office.



He says the loss of the JCA vote was as a result of his handling of the debacle concerning the withdrawal of the West Indies team from their tour of India last October.



It is understood that the majority of the directors, headed by JCA president, Wilford 'Billy' Heaven, were not impressed with the reasons given by Cameron for the abandonment of the tour, as well as his plans for settling the resultant US$42 million debt to the Indian board.
