Calvin Hope, Cricket West Indies (CWI) Director from Barbados, has come under fire for recent comments he made aimed at CWI President, Ricky Skerrit, and his administration.

Hope, who was speaking on the Mason & Guest radio talk show on the 28th of December 2021, questioned several decisions taken by the President Skerritt-led administration, including the removal of the Richard Pybus-led coaching staff in 2019.

Now, a week later, Tony Marshall, former President of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and former Director of CWI, speaking on the same show on January 4th, has expressed his displeasure at Hope’s approach.

“I’m sorry to say, I did not like it. He spoke very strongly against the President and he’s a member of the board,” Marshall began.

Hope showed, like his president that he has no class or dignity. Both he and the angry man running the BCA behave like rabid politicians seeking access to a national treasury. The BCA has become insularly aggressive since Joel Garner's(who went up against the big idiot with Baldath Mahabir as his running mate) term ended and these two misanthropes took over and became Cameron's bosom buddies

Tony Marshall should keep quiet. He went against the BCAs stated position and voted for himself.

When does a person vote against himself, if it was ok for him to be a candidate then no one expects any other action?

They should find out the set of Directors responsible for Skerrett's reign of terror and fire them and make sure they never, ever have any dealings with WI cricket ever again.

when you are a member of a board and that board makes a decision , you support that decision even if you disagree and voted against it during deliberation. Not every decision gets everyone's support, but you are a part of it once made; last week Conde was supporting Dow lawsuit, these guys lack organizational discipline.

No sir. It is true that the TTCB did first enthusiastically support Cameron as an alternative to hunte and especially Hillaire. They stopped supporting him along with Barbados before his first reelection bid in 2015, following how poorly he dealt with the India wage negotiations and the subsequent
victimization of bravo, pollard, rampaul, gayle and dre rus. The JCA for the most part also supported Garner and Maharaj but there was a fight at the board meeting after the JCA had originally intended to vote out Cameron.
