Dave Cameron is set to be be re-elected as WICB president for a third consecutive term on March 3. Cameron, who has been the WICB president for the last four years, was the only nominee for the post according to a WICB media release. Emmanuel Nathan, who has been the vice-president for the last four years, is also set to be re-elected for a third stint in a row in the position.

It was expected that Cameron would be re-elected; the prevailing chaos in key regional cricket boards like the Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board and the Guyana Cricket Board affords the Jamaican no credible opposition. Nonetheless, Cameron continues to polarise opinion across the Caribbean.

West Indies are the only team to be crowned World T20 champions two times, in 2012 and 2016, but they have been at the bottom of the ladder in ODIs and Tests. This has meant they will not be a part of the top-eight-teams Champions Trophy in England in June, leaving their fans disgruntled. While the relationship between the board and a number of high-profile players continues to be on rocky ground, the WICB - and Cameron - drew strong criticism when it sacked Phil Simmons as the head coach of West Indies last September. Simmons was critical of what he called outside influences having a bearing on selections, which did not impress the WICB. Recently former Australian allrounder Stuart Law was appointed Simmons' replacement.

The WICB elections, and the annual general meeting, will be held on March 3 at the board's headquarters in Antigua.

    Just as I stated a while back.From the comments of certain Board members Cameron would be re elected.The problem is not Cameron it is the Board members. So Bravo if you were looking for a change in leadership to ease back in you will have to say sorry because nobody is going anywhere. ....and that is the price you will have to pay for allowing others to think for you.

    If Bravo wants to play international cricket he better do what wicb wants him to do seeing as this egomaniac and the current board that nominated him isnt going anywhere.
