Who is Christopher Dehring and what recommended him to the position as Czar of CWC 2007. His mentor appears to be past president of the WICB Pat Rousseau a Jamaican lawyer who has done very well financially. It is rumoured that several of the deals around West Indian cricket in recent years have involved these two Jamaicans. How is it that this man was able to persuade Caribbean governments in nine countries to spend millions to ensure that CWC 2007 became a reality?Perhaps the burning question is to what extent has Chris Dehring directly profited from his association with CWC 2007? Is it unethical if he has profited? As CWC 2007 continues to unfold and respective governments ask the questions which should have been tabled from the outset perhaps Dr. Davies threat to take ICC to court will open the proverbial can of worms. Up to now Chris Dehring has been making all the right utterances even in the face of a CWC 2007 which is very low on the totem pole of being successful.
