Recently, the Guyana Cricket Board selection panel held a press conference to justify their selection of the Guyana Harpy Eagles team to participate in the upcoming regional four-day tournament and the non-selection of Anthony Adams in the squad. Editor, in all my years watching cricket press conferences, especially in relation to team selection, I have never seen a selection panel giving such ridiculous and nonsensical answers to questions posed by the press. It was so painful and embarrassing to watch that it would have been better that they had remained silent and did not hold that press conference. They only left more questions than answers and embarrassed themselves and the Guyana Cricket Board by shifting blame among themselves and not knowing their individual roles and functions. It is the worst cricket press conference I have ever witnessed.
I do not want to go into the details of the non-selection of Anthony Adams and Leon Johnson, knowing of the team selected by way of the press, that has already been well ventilated in the press and social media. I would like to take this opportunity to call on President Irfaan Ali and Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo to disband the Board and install an interim management committee to save Guyana cricket. This committee can function for a short period of time to put the GCB house in order, until fresh elections are held. Please Mr President, save Guyana cricket.
