Whycliffe ‘Dave’ Cameron, 44, a Jamaican businessman, was re-elected president of West Indies Cricket Board last Saturday at the Annual General Meeting at Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.

The president’s deputy and running-mate Emmanuel Nathan from Dominica was also re-elected as vice-president.

Cameron defeated challenger and former Barbados and West Indies fast bowler Joel Garner with eight votes to four while Nathan defeated Trinidad & Tobago businessman Baldat Mahabir also by an 8-4 margin.

Cameron had secured the support of four territorial WICB members – Guyana, Windward Islands, Leeward Islands and his home country, Jamaica while Garner got the support by his native Barbados Cricket Association and from the Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board.

The directors of West Indies Cricket Board comprise the nominated representatives of each of the six full members plus four independent directors.
