Clive Lloyd, the former West Indian captain, has been nominated for the vice-presidency of the West Indian Cricket Board. Ken Gordon will be the next president of the board, while Lloyd faces the opposition of Val Banks for the post of second-in-command. {{more}}

Lloyd, who led the West Indies through one of the most glorious phases in their cricketing history, has most recently been doing the rounds in international cricket as an ICC match referee.

Gordon, a former government minister from Trinidad and Tobago, was the only nominee for the presidency. He is well known around the Caribbean for his campaigns supporting freedom of the press, and will be the first president from T&T since Jeffrey Stollmeyer, who held the post in the 1970s.

Banks is the vice-president of the board and is hoping for re-election. An Anguillan banker, Banks has a strong chance of retaining his spot, and has already served under Wes Hall and Teddy Griffiths.
