Former West Indies team manager Ricky Skerritt has announced that he intends to challenge incumbent Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron for the position.

The 62-year-old is currently the president of the St Vincent and Grenadines Cricket Association and sits on the CWI board.

He will run on a ticket with Dr Kishore Swallow, a CWI director, who will be his vice-president if the pair are elected.

They have produced a 10-point plan which includes a new approach to squad selection and increasing funding at the grassroots level. However, a seam of anti-Cameron sentiment is very apparent in their bid.

"After six years as president, Dave Cameron's intention to implement sweeping changes to the democratic process of decision-making within West Indies cricket is troubling," Skerritt said.

"His desire to lead CWI as a full-time executive, is not reflective of the West Indies cricket ethos.

"By advancing his plans for an autocratic leadership structure, which marginalises the role of commercially recruited executives, the incumbent has placed his personal thinking diametrically opposed to the values of West Indies cricket."
