Dr Shallow said: “On behalf of Cricket West Indies, I sincerely thank the outgoing president Ricky Skerritt for his latest contribution to our beloved cricket. He has served with distinction and pride in one of the most challenging periods in our lifetime, the Covid-19 pandemic. His tenure has certainly moved us in the right direction.”

He added: “The resounding vote of confidence demonstrated by the shareholders is heartening. My profound gratitude to them and all the stakeholders for supporting me throughout the electoral process. As I embark on this new role with vice-president Bassarath, there is no delusion about the considerable workload.

“My philosophy remains one of unity and inclusivity. For it is only if we pool our resources and efforts together will West Indies cricket make any meaningful advancement as a cricket nation.”

Bassarath, the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) president, said: “It is indeed an honour to be elected to serve as the vice-president of Cricket West Indies and I look forward to working alongside Dr Shallow and the other members of the board of directors as we continue the good work done by Mr Skerritt for the benefit of everyone involved in West Indies Cricket.”
