Dr. Kishore Shallow was elected unopposed as the new president of Cricket West Indies at the organization’s Annual General Meeting in Antigua on Saturday.
He will have Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board President Asim Bassarath as his vice president.
Dr. Shallow succeeds Ricky Skerritt, who decided not to seek a third term. Skerritt became president in 2019 after defeating three-term president Dave Cameron in Kingston.
The new president, who also leads the Windward Islands Cricket Board, has promised significant changes to the way the CWI operates going forward. Those changes will manifest atop four key pillars that include cricket development: human capital, commercial and marketing, as well as governance.
In a recent interview, Dr. Shallow said he intends to invest in the development of young cricketers from the grassroots to the senior level while establishing a culture of pride and passion for West Indies cricket.
The new president also plans to incorporate modern-day best practices that align with Caribbean culture as well as implementing a viable and lucrative commercial model to enhance revenue streams for Cricket West Indies.
