WICB accepts CT20 Squad from GCB

The West Indies Cricket Board yesterday said it had received and accepted the 14-man Guyana Squad for the 2013 Caribbean T20 as provided by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB).

Included in the 14 are Windies heavyweights Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan.

The WICB statement will put the government on the spot again in a year-old battle with the GCB for control of cricket in Guyana.

GCB’s naming of the team on Monday came two days ahead of an extended deadline set by the WICB for the selection of the team.

The GCB had not named a team because of the ongoing tussle with the government. The government had de-recognised the GCB last year and named an interim management committee headed by Clive Lloyd to run cricket here. This interim body is however not recognized by the WICB which expects that the GCB and not the Lloyd-run body will name the team.

The government has argued that there are court orders prohibiting the   GCB and its members from performing cricketing duties. However, one of the defendants in the matter on Monday provided legal documents to Stabroek Sport to show that the applicable action had been withdrawn and discontinued by the applicant.

It is on this ground that the GCB has been saying that it has the right to operate since the legal prohibition is no longer in effect.

The WICB continues to state that it will not be dealing with the Interim Management Committee installed by the Government and it recently rejected a suggestion by the Government for it (the WICB) to identify an agent in Guyana to handle its cricketing affairs here. As a result of the controversy, the WICB has withdrawn international cricket from Guyana.

The players named by the GCB are: Trevon Griffith, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Leon Johnson, Narsingh Deonarine, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Christopher Barnwell, Royston Crandon, Steven Jacobs, Derwin Christian, Jonathan Foo, Veerasammy Permaul, Devendra Bishoo, Ronsford Beaton and Rajiv Ivan.

The standby players are Dillon Heyliger, Assad Fudadin, Paul Wintz, Keon Joseph, Anthony Bramble, Ander Stoll and Shemroy Hetemyer.
