April 5, 2014

Cricket Canada president Ravin Moorthy makes his final report to the AGM. After 7 years at  Cricket Canada, the past 2 at the helm, Moorthy is moving on.

In his final remarks, Moorthy thanked all the volunteers, staff and board members that he had served with as well as the members of the public that have supported the organization over the past several years as well as singling out the contributions of a few dedicated people who have served the organization with distinction. He also wished all the best to the incoming president and his new board.

Moorthy highlighted the progress that had been made off the field, especially over the past two years, that have resulted in a dramatic change in fortunes as Cricket Canada truly became a functioning corporation and turned the page on some missteps with its major stakeholders.

Moorthy thanked his colleagues for their support over the past 7 years saying

"While we certainly have had some challenges, we have had a lot of success as well. Moving Cricket Canada forward was first about steering a big ship around which we were able to do. I am happy we were able to give it a push forward as well and now look forward to enjoying watching as a fan and a supporter as to where things go from here."

Former Captain Ashish Bagai spoke about the time Moorthy spent at the organization

"Ravin has been instrumental in moving this organization forward over the last decade and his committment and leadership will definitely be missed around the country.  His passion for the sport and for moving Canada forward was inspirational to see and helped drive all of us at Cricket Canada.  In a country where you have to really believe in the cause and love the game of cricket due to the lack of financial or other benefits, Ravin stood out as one that always looked to give more than he expected back from the game. I thank him for his years of service and wish him and his family all the best in the years ahead."
