FOLLOWING the restoration of the Cricket Administration Act last September, Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr, said he will not be engaging the current Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) on matters relating to the game, calling the body ‘illegitimate’.
Minister Ramson, addressing reporters at the Guyana National Stadium, was stern in his comment that his ministry, and by extension the Government of Guyana, “does not recognise the body that calls themselves the Guyana Cricket Board, as the legitimate body that is supposed to represent Cricket in Guyana”.
Under former Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr Frank Anthony (now Minister of Health), the Act was tabled in 2014 and sought to firstly make it legal for GCB to be established as a corporate body comprising the Demerara, Essequibo and Berbice cricket boards, all of which will also be made corporate entities.

“Since the restoration of the Act, until there is an election where the persons who are elected to hold those positions in accordance with the Act;, until that occurs, the ministry is not engaging with a body that does not comply with the laws of Guyana,” Ramson stated.
The minister further pointed out, “that’s why, since the restoration of the Act, we have not engaged with the body that calls themselves the GCB and even though we have not done anything that would disallow them from carrying out activities, we are not engaging with them formally because we do not recognise them as the legitimate body representing cricket in Guyana on a National basis, until they are compliant with the Act.”
