West Indies cricket legend Clive Lloyd yesterday said that the mandate of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) set up by the Government to overlook the affairs of cricket administration in Guyana is not meant to take over the running of cricket. It is rather a procedure to rectify the current situation, he said.

Lloyd made those remarks at a press briefing held in the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport Boardroom in the presence of Sports Minister Dr Frank Anthony, Permanent Secretary Alfred King and media operatives.

"The implementation of the IMC is not a takeover situation, but rather to change the game. Guyana's cricket has been struggling for quite a while and the Government thought it fit to try and rectify the situation and to bring Guyana back to the position it was accustomed to years ago," Lloyd said.

Lloyd, who will serve as Chairman of the IMC for the next six months, said that the job at hand will take some time, but he is confident that the relevant people who were selected to be part of the IMC do have cricket at heart and the advancement of the game.
