WICB should issue statement on attempt to take over world cricket

Dear Editor,

I believe that the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) should issue a statement setting out its position on Mr. Srinivasan’s attempt to take over world cricket.

Although the proposal is in the names of India, Australia and England, I have little doubt that the intellectual author of this proposed takeover is the BCCI President, Mr Srinivasan.

Reading Tony Cozier’s article yesterday it would appear as if the West Indies Cricket Board is going to toe the line and support this outrageous proposal – the reason being lucrative future India tours. However, although finance is important, we must not put finances above principles.

I do not believe it will be fair to call on the Guyana Cricket Board to issue an individual position on this

matter as it is surely subject to the principle of collective responsibility at the WICB.

However, I do not believe there is any impediment to the Guyana Cricket Board demanding that the WICB publicly state its position before the meeting. We know the position of not only India, Australia and England but also South Africa.

The WICB should take the West Indian public in its confidence and state its position.

This cannot be a secret.

Yours faithfully,

Bish Panday
