Sports – 25th Jan 2013
Just when you thought Guyana’s cricket was in safe waters at least temporarily, think again. Just days before Guyana is set to take part in the regional 4 day and the Super 50 tournaments, Government Chief Legal Officer; the Attorney General, has filed individual contempt of court motions against all the members of the GCB. This is even as the WICB named Guyana as a tentative venue to host a test match when the Pakistanis come here in July, as well as 2 rounds of the regional 4-day and super 50 tournaments.
This move by the Government of Guyana comes also on the heels of the announcement by the WICB that it had approved two GCB representatives as Directors of the WICB.
Cricket in Guyana has gone through turbulent times over the past 18 months with several trips to the court by the Government, as well as the GCB and its executives. An Interim Management Committee headed by Former WI, Captain Clive Lloyd, was installed by the Minister of Sport and the mandate of that committee was to probe the affairs of cricket while drafting a new constitution under which fresh elections are to be held.
It is unclear how soon all of these will be completed
