Canada lose their CEO


Chandra Gocool has stepped down after two years as Cricket Canada’s chief executive after the board decided not to renew his contract.

The board has been blighted by constant internal bickering in recent times, and it is uncertain when a replacement will be identified.

“My contract with Cricket Canada has ended,” Gocool said. “It’s now over to the Cricket Canada's leadership to take the steps they feel might be necessary to move the various opportunities forward.”

This means that both Cricket Canada and the USA Cricket Association, two of the biggest Associates, are now without chief executives. Don Lockerbie, the USACA’s high-profile CEO, was removed at the start of the year and no steps appear to have been taken to try to replace him.
