Kishore Shallow replaces Ricky Skerritt as Cricket Windies President

Skerritt took over the responsibility of the CWI in March 2019 and has since then played a vital role in the revival of Windies Cricket

Cricket Windies chairman Ricky Skerritt decided not to seek re-election for the role of Cricket Windies president and Kishore Shallow, who was the vice-president to Skerritt for the last four years, taking over the onus as the president. That left Azim Bassarath of Trinidad and Tobago as the new vice president of the board.

“On behalf of Cricket West Indies, I sincerely thank the outgoing President Ricky Skerritt for his latest contribution to our beloved cricket. He has served with distinction and pride in one of the most challenging periods in our lifetime, the COVID-19 pandemic. His tenure has certainly moved us in the right direction,” Dr. Kishore Shallow said in a statement released by Cricket Windies.

“The resounding vote of confidence demonstrated by the shareholders is heartening. My profound gratitude to them and all the stakeholders for supporting me throughout the electoral process. As I embark on this new role with Vice President Bassarath, there is no delusion about the considerable workload. My philosophy remains one of unity and inclusivity. For it is only if we pool our resources and efforts together will West Indies cricket make any meaningful advancement as a cricket nation."

Shallow had also been serving as President of Windward Islands Cricket and was former president of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association.

Bassarath, on the other hand, had been serving as Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) president apart from being a CWI director till being elected as vice-president of CWI.

Skerritt took over the responsibility of the CWI in March 2019 and has since then played a vital role in the revival of Windies Cricket. By bringing all the T20 freelancers, who had turned their back on West Indies cricket after falling out with the board, back to the fold, Skerritt played a vital role in its reorganization.

West Indies are slated to host the T20 World Cup in June 2024 but before they have a marquee series against India, comprising two Tests, three ODIs, and five T20Is.
