Each week we’ll be asking a prominent cricket person a series of six questions. Get to know your fellow cricket lovers better, and catch up on what these people are doing in cricket all over the country and the world.
Whycliffe ‘Dave’ Cameron has been a member of the Cricket West Indies board since 2002, and in 2013 took over as President. He has been a great supporter of USA Cricket and helped broker the deal which sees #TeamUSA competing in the 2018 Cricket West Indies Regional Super50 competition.
Here’s his answers to the #SixHitter questions.
1.Tell us how you got involved in Cricket, what’s your role/association now?
I got involved with the game as my permanent home has been next door to Kensington Cricket Club for some 35 plus years now. I am currently the President of Kensington Cricket Club since 2001 and President of CWI since 2013.
2. Describe yourself in three words
Passionate, Competitive and Fair.
3. What is your earliest cricket memory?
Assisting to prepare the pitch at Kensington Cricket Club and being allowed to field when the Senior Team practiced.
4. What is your favourite cricket moment of all time?
Winning Sunlight Cricket in 1989 for my high School
5. What is the one development you would like to see in domestic cricket, and in international cricket?
We need fewer Windows for domestic cricket where all leagues participate simultaneously or in different regions. The revenue model in international cricket needs to change so that the top players can earn equivalent salaries and that smaller boards will survive. The current model with the host country earning only is not sustainable
6. Where do see cricket in the USA in 10 years’ time?
I hope USA will be in all world events in 10 years.
