Compliments of the Nation NewsThe 2004 Carib Beer International Challenge Trophy, won by Barbados to complete a phenomenal “double double”, is the most significant among the long list of successes captain Courtney Browne has enjoyed in his long stint in national colours.
It was achieved at 11:18 a.m. when Barbados defeated Jamaica by the comfortable margin of 84 runs before appreciative hometown supporters, 24 hours after the hosts appeared to be in a hopeless position.
It was Barbados’ fifth title under Browne’s inspirational leadership in the past two-and-a-half years and it was the tenth he has been part of since his debut for the country in 1991. < Read more >

Barbados’ brilliance in the Carib Beer Series continued as they grabbed first innings points over the Leeward Islands to secure this year’s title.
over two centuries cricket has not simply become the national sport of
Barbados but almost a way of life! Bajans love their cricket, they are
born into it and that inherent passion never leaves them. Cricket has
not only been instrumental in bringing about major social changes within
the island but within the Caribbean as a whole.
Cricket clubs have grown up over the years Pickwick and
Wanderers being just two.

All the additional trappings and social rituals associated with the game have developed over the years and have resulted in some fascinating local heroes such as 'Flannagan' and 'King Dyal'. Ask any local and they will entertain you with stories of their antics and pranks!
