Members riled up over ‘lack of fairness’

IT seems there are rumblings in the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) regarding the organisation’s stance in relation to the impending Cricket West Indies (CWI) elections.

 Concerned members have started a petition to have an extraordinary general meeting to have an input on the BCA’s position on the CWI elections slated for March 24. The petition is being led by former BCA board member Hartley Reid.

Reid has tabled a petition under the name Time To Restore The Dignity In Barbados Cricket to members and clubs “as a concerned member who is disgusted by the recent reports of a refusal to allow CWI candidates Ricky Skerritt and Dr Kishore Shallow to speak to board members and the membership”.

The letter states: “The lack of democracy, fairness and equity is appalling. This cannot be allowed to continue. We are heading down a dangerous path.

“It is therefore for this reason that concerned members have started a petition to have an extraordinary general meeting to have an input on the BCA’s position on the Cricket West Indies (CWI) elections scheduled for March 24, 2019.

“It is our estimation that at this critical juncture of West Indies cricket, there is a need for more collective opinion on the determination of the leadership of CWI.” (MK)
