[www.inewsguyana.com] – Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board and Guyanese Director on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Anand Sanasie is being called upon to resign following the decision of the WICB to relocate the test match between New Zealand and West Indies from Guyana to Barbados.
The call was made by General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee, who told reporters at a news conference that Sanasie sat at the WICB meeting “either silently or voiced his support for the decision to remove the test match from Guyana.”
According to Rohee, “This is the kind of character who wants to manage Guyana’s cricket, when they are willing to sell their souls to remain relevant and in change of the sport in Guyana. We call on Mr. Sanasie to resign as the Guyanese Director in the WICB, as he proved he is of no worth to represent the interest of Guyanese players and cricket fans.”
The WICB decided to relocate the match, following the passage of the Cricket Administration Bill in Guyana. Government is claiming that the Bill seeks to bring transparency, accountability, and good governance to the administration of cricket in Guyana and to address the plethora of allegations of rigged and fraudulent elections, financial irregularities and lack of accountability in respect of cricket administration and does not allow for government’s involvement in the sport.
