PORT OF SPAIN – Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board chief, Azim Bassarath, believes both the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) had more than enough time to peruse the audited financial statements sent by Cricket West Indies, leaving them with no excuse not to attend last Sunday’s annual general meeting.
Bassarath believes the decision by both boards to snub the virtual AGM and force its postponement until April 11 was “a mistake” and had resulted in a strengthening of support for president, Ricky Skerritt, and vice-president Dr Kishore Shallow.
The veteran administrator said while CWI had sent out the financials late, the management had given “reasonable excuses” for doing so.
And after territorial boards received the email containing the financials just before midday last Friday, Bassarath believes there was sufficient time to have reviewed them. (CMC)
