THE Cricket West Indies (CWI) Annual General Meeting scheduled for Sunday has been postponed after the Guyana Cricket Board and the Barbados Cricket Association boycotted the meeting.

Incumbent president Ricky Skerritt and vice-president Dr Kishore Shallow were expected to be challenged by Guyana's Anand Sanasie and vice-president candidate Calvin Hope of Barbados.

A CWI media release on Sunday said the AGM was supposed to start at 10 am but was adjourned owing to a lack of quorum.

CWI said, "The meeting therefore could not proceed to business as the CWI Articles of Association stipulate that nine representatives of the full members need to be present in person to constitute a quorum. All eight representatives duly authorised to represent the Jamaica Cricket Association, Leeward Islands Cricket Board, Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board and the Windward Islands Cricket Board were present."

There were no representatives from Guyana or Barbados.

CWI Articles of Associations state that if there is no quorum within 30 minutes from the time appointed for the meeting, it shall be adjourned to the next business day or to such time as the board of directors may determine.

CWI said attempts to reach the representatives from the BCA and GCB were unsuccessful. The meeting was eventually adjourned at 10.50 am.

The CWI Board of Directors subsequently held an Emergency Board Meeting and decided that the AGM will resume on April 11 at 10 am.
