Barbados: West Indies cricket went into a turmoil last weekend over the reinstatement of team manager Ricky Skerritt. The annual general meeting (AGM) of the directors of the West Indies Cricket Board, which met on Saturday, decided to overturn the decision of Board president Pat Rousseau and vice-president Clarvis Joseph to sack manager Skerritt.Rousseau and Joseph promptly tendered their resignations from their respective posts. In a joint statement issued to reporters they stated that they were resigning with effect from Monday, June 4. They insisted that they were resigning as their decision had been overturned by the directors."In our opinion the directors position directly challenged our competence and our integrity in carrying out the process (of evaluating and terminating the contract of Skerritt). Since we are not prepared to carry out the directive to reinstate Skerritt we feel obligated to resign." The decision to sack Skerritt had evoked wide spread criticism. West Indies is scheduled to travel to Zimbabwe later this month for a triangular One-day series also involving India.
