Skerritt takes issue with Cameron’s comment


Share post:

FORMER West Indies manager Ricky Skerritt says he is disappointed but not surprised at Cricket West Indies’ (CWI) president Dave Cameron’s negative response to his announcement that he will be challenging him for the presidency.

Skerritt is upset with Cameron’s comments in a recent interview on the Line And Length Network where he referred to his four-year stint as manager from 2000 to 2004 as “that period of turmoil”.

“While I was team manager there was zero industrial unrest by players. We were proud ambassadors for West Indies cricket globally. This period was a time when we were still winning more matches than we lost and players were still respected by the CWI leadership,” Skerritt contended.

“Instead of making such unfounded and petty attacks on me, I recommend that Mr Cameron hold audience with former players and ask about their experiences and existing relationships with me,” Skerritt said. (EZS)
