Georgetown: West Indies Cricket Board president Pat Rousseau earned a 9-5 verdict to stay in office at the annual general body meeting held on Friday.

Rosseau faced a challenge from a vociferous Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board president Alloy Lequay. Rousseau will now continue to remain in office for another two-year term.

"I am very pleased because I think there are still a lot of things to be done in relation to putting the World Cup 2007 in place, and I would like to see those basic arrangements put together before I depart office," Rousseau said after his victory.

Rousseau was also happy that by remaining in office he could continue with the development policies, which the WICB had pursued in the last three years.

"I want to see West Indies on top of the tree of World Cricket again," the Jamaica-born Rousseau said. "I would like us to beat England on the coming tour and Australia later this year and then get ready for South Africa early in the New Year."
