He further said, “My experience in cricket administration at the various levels has positioned me uniquely to understand the requirements to advance West Indies cricket and I remain committed to this, while serving all stakeholders in the pursuit of sporting excellence.”

In addition, Shallow announced his Pushing the Boundaries manifesto will be launched on Monday across the region and published across various international platforms.

He said, “This manifesto represents new innovative leadership, and demonstrates strategic and practical planning, with alignments culturally.”
