Skerritt is said to be among nominees to sit on the Board.
Minister Skerritt said he was fortunate to have found himself “going back into my old, very passionate role in West Indies Cricket,” when he participated at the CARICOM Meeting, and the discussion related to West Indies Cricket, during a recent meeting of CARICOM, in Haiti.
“There was an item on the agenda that related to matters outstanding to do with West Indies Cricket. So while I sat through the entire agenda and several of the items were new to me and very awareness building for me, I was able to participate actively in at least two of the agenda items based on my current and past areas of responsibility,” said Minister Skerritt.
But during the interview in the VIP Lounge at the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, Prime Minister Douglas, who led the delegation, disclosed that Caribbean leaders “had taken a decision during discussion on cricket, that we would need now to have a Government Representative or Director representing the Government sitting on the Board.”
“I would say to you that Senator Hon. Skerritt was one of the persons who was nominated for consideration by the Heads of Government. I think sometime later, we would hear the outcome of this,” said Dr. Douglas.
The St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister said: “St. Kitts and Nevis is very pleased to put forward his name. Given his experience and given the significance, I think the contribution that he has been involved in, in particular, in preparing our venues here for the hosting of World Cup Matches in 2007.”
