Ahmad happy normalcy, democracy will return to cricket




By Rajiv Bisnauth

Evidence of poor management in the local management of cricket has been one of the continuing dramas for nearly a decade.

This Friday, however, the situation could soon come to a halt as elections for a legitimate Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) will take place at a location and time to be determined.

Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Charles Ramson Jr., has set February 26 as the date for the highly anticipated election of the new Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) executive.

To this end, former Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB) president Sheik Ahmad said in an invited response yesterday that he is satisfied with the new development as some form of normalcy and democracy will return locally into play.

While I am glad that normalcy and democracy in cricket is returning, I must applaud the initiative of the concerned minister and all stakeholders, who have struggled tirelessly for a decade to bring this semblance of order to our cricket, Ahmad said.

Ahmad, who had served as treasurer at the GCB and as deputy director of the West Indies Cricket Board, now Cricket West Indies (CWI), urged the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB) to stand up and join participate in the election. He further urged the ECB to be a part of the new GCB and its development plans so that cricket can improve at both provincial and national levels.

The veteran cricket administrator believes that retired cricket players should play an integral role in the new leadership.

Meanwhile, Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) president Bissoondyal Singh said the ministers’ announcement is a relief for all aspiring cricket players in Guyana.

I must commend the Honorable Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Charles Ramson Jr., for aggressively pursuing this cause to end the illegality and illegality that clouded Guyana’s cricket.

When history is made this minister should be properly placed as one who contributed to our dear country as it relates to the development of cricket, never again would we have a national institution taken up by a few and (who ) shut out the people of this country. It should be a breath of fresh air for all of Guyana’s aspiring cricketers, said Singh, who is also chairman of the East Coast Cricket Board (ECCB).

The ministers’ moves stem from consultations with the CWI, in line with the requirements of the Guyana Cricket Administration Act and in the wake of last Friday’s DCB elections.

Lawyer Kamal Ramkarran was appointed the new Cricket Ombudsman. Ramkarran, who has served as President of the Bar Association of Guyana in the past, replaces Stephen Lewis, who was appointed by then Secretary of Sport George Norton.

Furthermore, the Cricket Ombudsman will then advise on the next steps in accordance with the Guyana Cricket Administration Act.

Administrative failure aside, GCB has been mired in controversy from one lawsuit to the next for nearly a decade. Elections have not been held since 2012 and it was only last month that those who considered themselves executive members of the body were considered illegal by the Guyanese government.
