GCB’s repulsive support for Cameron continues

As the high profile endorsements mount for his rival, amidst his invisible plans for the future and the bombshell ESPN Cricinfo expose’ on his expense indulgences, fans should be repulsed by the Guyana Cricket Board’s continued slavish support for the Cricket West Indies (CWI) incumbent president Dave Cameron.

With former playing greats Clive Lloyd, Viv Richards, Andy Roberts and others giving Cameron the thumbs down for a fourth term, in preference for challenger Ricky Skerritt, the revelation that Cameron’s presence in the chair is costing approximately US $500,000, has whacked an already poor campaign.

Cricinfo’s report of Cameron allegedly seeking an increase of US$10,000 in monthly general expenses, which were eventually whittled down to US$6,000, an entertainment allowance reaching $100,000 and travel, office maintenance and staff taking the yearly bill to the half million US dollars figure, is an absurdity for a cash strapped organization whose international teams continue to languish at the near bottom of the international rankings…..
