Bassarath appointed CWI Vice-President

Azim Bassarath has been appointed Vice-President of Cricket West Indies (CWI).

The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board president was promoted to the vice-president position during the fraternity’s annual general meeting (AGM) on March 25th.

Bassarath confirmed his promotion from CWI director to vice-president, at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva on Monday.

Bassarath ran for the position uncontested and will become the first TT cricket administrator to serve in this role. He is currently the CWI vice-president designate until officially announced at the AGM.

Tobago Cricket Association president Kerwin John will replace Bassarath as a CWI director.

Dr Kishore Shallow is the outgoing CWI vice-president but also a keen contender in the presidential race. His challenger for the top position is Jamaica Cricket Association president Wilford “Billy” Heaven.
