Cave tenders resignation to ABCA

ST JOHN’S, Antigua- Antigua & Barbuda Cricket Association (ABCA) Secretary Martin Cave has been asked by the board to tender his resignation immediately.

This is according to sources close to the association. The source, who asked for anonymity, refused to give further details on the latest development.
Reports indicate, however, that the usually outspoken Cave and President Zorol Barthley could not see eye to eye on a number of administrative protocols and practices.

When contacted for comment, both Barthley and Cave opted not to publicly address the development. Cave, however, did confirm that he had tendered his resignation as secretary, but did so of his own volition.

Cave, during the run-up to the December 2012 elections in which Barthey was unopposed in his bid for the presidency, Cave was notably vocal against then president Enoch Lewis and the manner in which he felt the former player was handling the association’s affairs.

The cricket association has made some strides to rebuilding public interest in the game with the latest attempt being the inaugural Cool & Smooth Twenty20 tournament.
