Dave Camron: “Respect More Important than Likability!”

West Indies Cricket Board Dave Cameron has claimed that respect is far more important that likability in the relationship between the board and senior players. The incumbent has often been criticized for a hard line approach when it comes to a relationship with the senior players, particularly concerning delicate issues. The most notable instance came during the 2014 tour of India where some blame the approach taken by Cameron as partly responsible for strike action taken by the players in India, which resulted in an impasse with the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) and a subsequent claim of US$42 million in damages. The WICB boss has, however, insisted that his style of leadership is not a major issue in the broader context of West Indies cricket. “The players don’t play for Dave Cameron. The players play for West Indies and for the region,” Cameron told Antiguan Radio last week. “My style is what it is and you don’t have to like your boss to work with him. Once you can respect each other’s position, then I think we could move forward.” For his part the WICB boss insists that he has always maintained a healthy respect for the region’s players. I’ve always had a lot of respect for the talents of our players and former players and that’s why we do what we do,” he said. “I’ve been in cricket for well over 35 years. It’s not something I started doing last week, so I have a very great and deep appreciation for the game and for our legends, which is why I do what I do.”
