Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Secretary Anand Sanasie will challenge the current Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Ricky Skerritt for post of CWI presidency.

Sanasie confirmed that he was nominated by the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and it is understood that Calvin Hope will run for the post of Vice-President.

Both Sanasie and Hope are Directors at CWI. The virtual CWI elections are tentatively set for March 21 and nominations will be closed tomorrow, February 18.

The current Skerritt administration won the CWI elections back in 2019, defeating the Whycliffe Dave Cameron and Emmanuel Nathan administration 8-4.

Earlier in the week, the current vice-president of CWI, Kishore Shallow told Nation Wide Sports that he will be very surprised if himself and Skerritt are not be elected in next month’s election.

With Covid-19 challenging the globe, Shallow is of the believe that this administration has done enough for the CWI directors to show faith for a second time.

“Managing the financial challenges, committing to these tours, getting cricket to be played throughout the region, Super50 is on. The last eight to ten months have really tested our leadership and I think it would have showed some positive light,” Shallow said.
