St.John’s, Antigua - Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Ricky Skerritt has been appointed to the Marylebone Cricket Club’s (MCC) World Cricket Committee, which meets twice a year to discuss the most important issues in the game and acts as an independent voice in world cricket. 

Skerritt joins England’s All-time leading run scorer Alistair Cook as new members after former West Indies fast bowler and current commentator Ian Bishop, and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al-Hasan stood down from the committee.

Skerritt joins England’s All-time leading run scorer Alistair Cook as new members after former West Indies fast bowler and current commentator Ian Bishop, and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al-Hasan stood down from the committee.

With the likes of the young Cook and Al-Hasan being candidates, maybe Ian Bishop felt too old to be a part of the committee, hence his decline.

Perks of Presidency

BI loved him some perks. I think that’s the most hurtful to him and what he misses most.

I suspect Ricky enjoys a good perk as well

Dave Cameron was a part of that committee when he was President. Nothing is new here.
