Dave Cameron, Joel Garner vie for WICB chief post
St. John's (Antigua), Feb 11 (IANS) Incumbent Dave Cameron and challenger Joel Garner will contest the presidential elections of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) at its annual general meeting on March 7.
Cameron, a Jamaican businessman, and Garner, former West Indies pacer, are the only two candidates for the post of WICB president after the deadline for nominations ran out on Saturday. A WICB statement on Tuesday confirmed that Cameron and Garner were the only two nominations received, reports CMC.
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 as a keen tussle between the two and a high point of the AGM. Guyana, Leeward Islands and Windward 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 are entitled two votes each.
