Gonsalves lauds Skerritt, Shallow


Share post:

Outspoken St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves has labelled Ricky Skerritt and Dr Kishore Shallow as “two very good candidates” for the top posts in Cricket West Indies (CWI) elections later this month.

Skerritt, a former Cabinet minister in St Kitts, will be seeking to topple incumbent CWI president Dave Cameron while Shallow, the president of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association, will be up against Emmanuel Nathan for the vice-presidency.

Gonsalves, the chairman of the CARICOM sub-committee on cricket, said Skerritt and Shallow were “modern Caribbean personalities steeped within our Caribbean civilisation”, and possessed the ideas to take West Indies cricket forward.

“Well, I, nor do the people of the region, have a vote. It’s an indirect election of a kind which ought to change.

“Even the people in cricket are saying this,” Gonsalves said. (CMC)
