Dave Cameron is set to be re-elected as the president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the third successive term, on March 3. Cameron will be entering the elections, set to be held at the board’s headquarter in Antigua, unopposed. Emmanuel Nathan, who has been the vice-president for the last four years and also the only person contesting for the post, is also set to be re-elected for a third consecutive stint.

Both Cameron and Nanthan have already served two-year terms in their respective positions. The posts will be ratified at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), also due on the same day.

“The Corporate Secretary, Verlyn Faustin, confirmed that Cameron and Nanthan were the only two nominees received for the posts of president and vice president respectively,” the WICB said. “Both Cameron and Nanthan have already served two year terms in the respective positions. The posts will be ratified at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) also due on the same day. The election and AGM are scheduled for Antigua.”

Under Cameron’s reign as the WICB president, the relationship between the players and the board has remained strained. After former head coach Phil Simmons was sacked following his claims that there was ‘outside interference’ in team selection, criticisms against Cameron’s reached its peak.

In the previous board elections, Cameron had defeated legendary pacer Joel Garner.
