Former West Indies fast bowler and current Barbados Cricket Association head has suffered a double blow.
As he awaited the outcome of his very challenging bid for the presidency of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), news came of the passing of his 85-year-old father Hutson King, who died at home in Enterprise A, Carter’s Gap, Christ Church last night.
Garner, who was in Jamaica at the time, was due back home tonight.
Today, it was announced in Kingston that Dave Cameron had been re-elected president of the governing body for regional cricket after he defeated Garner 8-4 in the WICB elections. Cameron’s vice-president Emmanuel Nanthan was also returned to power by an 8-4 margin, beating out Garner’s running mate Baldath Mahabir of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board.
