BCA, GCB ‘mistake’ has increased support for Skerritt — Bassarath

The oth­er ter­ri­to­r­i­al boards with the ex­cep­tion of the Guyana Crick­et Board did not waive so I don’t think that should re­al­ly be any ma­jor ex­cuse and rea­son for not at­tend­ing the meet­ing.”

He con­tin­ued: “How long will you take to re­al­ly pe­ruse a fi­nan­cial state­ment? If you take six hours, you got the state­ment about 48 to 60 hours be­fore the meet­ing, and if you take six hours to pe­ruse the doc­u­ment, it was enough time

Trinidad and To­ba­go Crick­et Board chief, Az­im Bas­sarath, be­lieves both the Bar­ba­dos Crick­et As­so­ci­a­tion and Guyana Crick­et Board, 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 (AGM).

Fur­ther, 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 in­cum­bent pres­i­dent, Ricky Sker­ritt, and vice-pres­i­dent Dr Kishore Shal­low.

The vet­er­an ad­min­is­tra­tion 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.

The man­age­ment of the board had sub­mit­ted a rea­son, an ex­cuse for not sub­mit­ting the fi­nan­cials on time,” Bas­sarath said.

“I think the Bar­ba­dos Crick­et As­so­ci­a­tion did waive the no­tice as was asked for by the man­age­ment team and then they with­drew.

The oth­er ter­ri­to­r­i­al boards with the ex­cep­tion of the Guyana Crick­et Board did not waive so I don’t think that should re­al­ly be any ma­jor ex­cuse and rea­son for not at­tend­ing the meet­ing.”

He con­tin­ued: “How long will you take to re­al­ly pe­ruse a fi­nan­cial state­ment? If you take six hours, you got the state­ment about 48 to 60 hours be­fore the meet­ing, and if you take six hours to pe­ruse the doc­u­ment, it was enough time.

And there were rea­son­able ex­cus­es why the fi­nan­cial re­port was not sub­mit­ted on time so I don’t think it should be an ex­cuse why the meet­ing couldn’t go on and why they didn’t at­tend the meet­ing.”

In state­ments fol­low­ing the post­pone­ment of the meet­ing, both the BCA and GCB ex­pressed con­cern over the late­ness of the au­dit­ed fi­nan­cial state­ments and the lim­it­ed time to re­view them

“De­spite the re­ceipt of the doc­u­ments at the afore­men­tioned time, it was ev­i­dent that there was in­suf­fi­cient time be­fore the sched­uled AGM to prop­er­ly analyse the Au­dit­ed Fi­nan­cial State­ments,” the BCA said, adding they had in “no way sought to frus­trate the process” by not at­tend­ing the AGM

The GCB, whose Anand Sanasie was set to chal­lenge Sker­ritt in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion dur­ing the AGM, said they were not “pre­pared to coun­te­nance the ir­re­spon­si­ble and im­pru­dent man­age­ment of CWI fi­nances” by tol­er­at­ing the un­time­ly pre­sen­ta­tion of the au­dit­ed fi­nan­cials

Bas­sarath, how­ev­er, said he be­lieved both boards will look back on their ac­tions with a mea­sure of re­gret

“If you look at so­cial me­dia, if you look at what is in the pub­lic do­main, I think it has so­lid­i­fied tremen­dous sup­port for both Mr Sker­ritt and Dr Shal­low,” he told Ja­maica-based TV sports ca­ble chan­nel Sports­Max

“By now I feel that the Guyana Crick­et Board and the Bar­ba­dos Crick­et As­so­ci­a­tion will have re­alised they made a mis­take by not at­tend­ing the meet­ing.”

Since their de­ci­sion to skip Sun­day’s meet­ing, the GCB and BCA have come un­der heavy crit­i­cism from fel­low ter­ri­to­r­i­al boards

The Ja­maica Crick­et As­so­ci­a­tion said the lat­est de­vel­op­ment was a “dark mo­ment” which had wors­ened the di­vide in West In­dies crick­et

“This to me is a dark mo­ment in West In­dies crick­et. When you are more con­cerned about your­self and po­si­tion than West In­dies crick­et, it does not say much for our game,” said JCA pres­i­dent Bil­ly Heav­en

The po­lit­i­cal di­vide in West In­dies crick­et has gone to an all-time low. It is not the first [time] that CWI has re­quest­ed and been grant­ed a waiv­er.”

The Wind­ward Is­lands Crick­et Board, head­ed by Shal­low, said there was no “good rea­son for the man­ner in which con­fu­sion and dis­re­pute have been foist­ed up­on our es­teemed and ho­n­ourable gov­ern­ing body.”

And the Lee­ward Is­lands Crick­et Board al­so con­tend­ed the ac­tions of the BCA and GCB had brought CWI “in­to dis­re­pute”
