PM hoping Windies door to change opened

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says he hopes that the door to change has opened with the change of leadership in West Indies cricket.

Ricky Skerritt defeated former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Dave Cameron 8-4 in Sunday's election.

Dr Rowley issued the following statement on Monday:

 "I am pleased to hope that a door to far-reaching progressive change is now open. 

This holds out the prospect for the effecting of the much-needed restructuring of the management of the regional game with some sense of purpose and urgency.

My regional colleagues and I look forward to early contact with the new President, Ricky Skerritt and his team and to pick up our effort from where it was derailed from the Patterson/ Barriteau work onto a new road which recognises "West Indies Cricket" as a "public good", a heritage of all West Indian citizens, to be honoured, nurtured and managed sustainably by the widest effective participation by Caribbean people using proven best practice methods.

To this end I have already called for a two-day colloquium to be hosted by one of our territories with the fullest participation of ALL stakeholders with a view to approving an immediate ACTION PLAN to construct the new Road Ahead for West Indies cricket from kindergarten to the halls of fame."
