SVGCA Inc president joins Cricket West Indies directorship


Kishore Shallow, president of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association Inc, is humbled and excited about his new elevation, to the post as a director of Cricket West Indies, formerly the West Indies Cricket Board.

Shallow was elected recently to the post at Cricket West Indies’ annual general meeting, held at Accra Beach Hotel in Barbados. He replaced fellow Vincentian Elson Crick, as the Windward Islands’ representative on the board.

Relating his elevation, Shallow noted: “I am appreciative to the electorate for the opportunity to serve the region in cricket; this sport has tremendous value to every West Indian, and so, I am truly humbled by the confidence in my ability to enhance Cricket West Indies”.

Shallow acknowledged that the regional sport is not at the level that it ought to be and promised to help to address it.

“I am certain that I share the sentiments of the other Board members, that our cricket is not where it should be and while this is being addressed, I trust that my involvement at this level would augment the pace to consistent success and rise in world cricket… I have no doubt that with the right energy and focus, on and off the field, we will experience many more successes like we did in 2016,” Shallow projected.

Shallow, after serving as the assistant executive member of the SVGCA Inc from January 2013 to May, 2014, became the interim president, following a vote of no-confidence against then head of the organization Julian Jack.

Shallow was installed as president in December 2014 and again in January of this year.

A former national youth and senior cricketer, Shallow is an Information Technology and Business consultant and the managing director of iShallz, which is an amalgamated establishment based in St Vincent and the Grenadines, which offers a range of IT related services, from website designing to marketing solutions.

He has been a consultant of IMHOTEP Consulting and technical specialist with Populus Global Solutions.

Chair of the SVG Young Professional Association, Shallow has served as a Caricom youth ambassador and vice-dean, Information and Communication.

Shallow also served in the Public Service of St Vincent and the Grenadines, as system administrator in the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment and was a member of the Regional Commission on Marijuana.
