Sanasie withdraws CWI candidacy
Former Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board, Anand Sanasie, on Thursday afternoon announced that he has withdrawn his candidacy for President of Cricket West Indies (CWI).
Sanasie and his running mate Calvin Hope, the Vice-president of the Barbados Cricket Association, had mounted a challenge to the incumbent CWI President Ricky Skerritt and Vice-president Dr. Kishore Shallow, however, the Annual General Meeting (AGM), scheduled for March 28, had to be adjourned due to a lack of quorum.
The AGM was shifted to April 11, after delegates of the Guyana Cricket Board and the Barbados Cricket Association were a no-show.
“After deep reflection and consultations with my advisors I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for Presidency of CWI. I will shortly write to the Corporate Secretary to advise her accordingly. Consequently, I take this opportunity to extend congratulations and best wishes to Mr. Ricky Skerritt since he will be uncontested,” Sanasie said in a press statement.
“I urge that more deliberate efforts be made to strengthen the finances of CWI and to improve in the areas of prudent fiscal management, accountability and transparency. I also urge that greater respect be accorded to Territorial Boards and that there is considerably more inclusivity in executive decision making and corporate governance.”
