It has recently emerged in the press that Mr. Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron, former President of Cricket West Indies (CWI), will be seeking nominations to serve as chairman of cricket’s world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC).
We have always maintained that to fill any vacant job position; it should be the person with the requisite knowledge, skills, and abilities as well as the necessary experience to do so.
The fact that U.S. Cricket Hall of Fame first recommended Mr. Cameron for the position speaks volumes to the benefits that could be reaped in nominating Mr. Cameron for the post of chairman.
“The growth and development of cricket worldwide has been stagnant, going nowhere. The top five countries have all enjoyed the economic benefits. We have a chance to correct this inequality. I know there is a strain at the CWI camp. Only the strong survive,” said Mike Chambers, the Executive Director of the Cricket Hall of Fame in a press report.
“I am hoping that CWI can see the benefits of nominating Dave Cameron for this position. With the hope that India, Pakistan, or England would second the nomination,” he added.
The truth is Mr. Cameron thinks outside the box, and we here on this side of the pond have seen his creative and innovative mind at work while serving as CWI president for the six years he was in office.
Moreover, Mr. Cameron has served in various leadership capacities with great success in sports and various civic organizations.
We hold no brief for Mr. Cameron, but we believe that if he is afforded the opportunity to serve as chairman, the less developed cricketing countries’ interests would be best served.
Furthermore, it is our considered opinion that Mr. Cameron, the 42-year-old Jamaican, has a wealth of experience and is fully equipped to assume the leadership of the ICC.
