Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) representative Baldath Mahabir confirmed yesterday he will be contesting the post of vice-president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) when the organisation holds its AGM in Kingston, Jamaica on March 7.
On Tuesday , reports coming out of Jamaica stated that former West Indies fast bowler Joel Garner received the backing of the William ‘Billy’ Heaven-led Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) to try and oust incumbent Jamaican president of the West Indies Cricket Board(WICB) Dave Cameron at next month’s election of officers, with Mahabir expected to run as his vice president.
But asked if the TTCB had determined who they would be supporting for the WICB presidency, Mahabir, one of the TTCB’s two West Indies Board directors would not confirm who the local body would be supporting.
“I am not aware. That would have to come from the (TTCB) president (Azim Bassarath),” Mahabir said.
Several calls to Bassarath’s cell phone went unanswered.
