Barbados has decided to back Clive Lloyd for the post of vice-president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB)

by PHILIP SPOONER Compliments of the Nation News

Barbados has decided to back Clive Lloyd for the post of vice-president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) ahead of next month's annual general meeting.

Stephen Alleyne, president of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), said Barbados was the second country to support Lloyd, who was first nominated by his native Guyana. The annual general meeting of the WICB will be held in St Maarten on August 6 and 7, where the president and vice-president will be elected.
Ken Gordon, the former media manager from Trinidad has been nominated unopposed for the post of president, while Lloyd, a former West Indies captain, will be running against incumbent Val Banks for vice-president.

"Lloyd is highly respected and we decided to throw our support behind him," Alleyne said yesterday. "The general view is that with Gordon being the sole candidate for president, it was felt that the vice-president should be one with a strong cricketing background and experience, and would bring a cricketing outlook."
The 60-year-old Lloyd, who now lives in England, was the most outstanding captain in the history of West Indies cricket. He is the only captain to win the World Cup twice – 1975 and 1979 – both at Lord's.
While he was at the helm of the West Indies team between 1974 and 1985, they signalled an unprecedented dominance of the game worldwide. After retirement, he was manager of the West Indies team and an International Cricket Council match referee.

"Lloyd has again shown his commitment to West Indies cricket by making himself available," said Alleyne. "We believe strongly he would bring balance and coverage of all the issues of the game." His position as one of the finest West Indies skippers speaks for itself and his further involvement in other cricket development programmes and also as West Indies manager and ICC match referee demonstrated his appeal on the international stage."

The post of president of the WICB became vacant when Teddy Griffith, the former Barbados and Jamaica batsman, stepped down last month. Griffith took up the job in October 2003 after Wes Hall stepped down.

Lloyd was originally running for president, but after Gordon won that bid, Lloyd was offered a nomination for the post of vice-president.
