WICB pres praises Chanders in Christmas message
President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Dave Cameron in his Christmas message has praised the efforts of the durable Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Cameron chosen as president earlier this year said his tenure was tough so far but the WICB has made significant strides and will continue to do so in the coming year. His message reads as follows: “Dear West Indies cricket fans, sponsors, stakeholders, officials, media and general public. On behalf of the board of directors, the players and the management and staff of West Indies cricket I take this opportunity to extend warm and blessed holiday greetings to each of you, your families and friends and loved ones. “We thank you for your resolute and unyielding support of our noble game throughout 2013. Cricket is what binds and unifies us and you have demonstrated this in so many ways this year. We look forward to your continued support and rallying in 2014 and onwards.
“This year has been a challenging one for West Indies cricket on the field but it has been one which we have seen some significant successes and made some marked strides on the field and off it as well. “I must salute Shivnarine Chanderpaul for achieving 150 Test appearances and 11,000 runs in Test cricket. Shiv continues to be a shining champion of whom we are all proud. We have also seen several others players making strides in their world rankings even as our team performances have not always been as strong as we would all like them to be.
“We believe that once we put in the hard work necessary, successes in all formats for both the men’s and women’s teams are not far off. At the Board of Directors and management levels we continue to be committed to the hard task of the redevelopment of the game for future successes. We are doing the critical work behind the scenes to ensure that we continue to produce world class players and to help to improve the team performance in all formats. “2014 promises to be a most exciting year for West Indies cricket. We will commence regionally with the NAGICO Super50 before heading into a home limited overs series with Ireland and England. The West Indies men’s team will defend the World Twenty20 title, the West Indies Under 19 will challenge for the Youth World Cup and the Windies Women will battle for the World T20 title as well. Your support of the game and our teams is as vital as it has ever been.”
