Compliments of the Nation News

Sir Viv Richards

In the mid-eighties Viv Richards as captain had the good fortune to inherit a world-beating West Indies team from Clive Lloyd. It was the age of 'pace' and bowlers the likes of Malcolm Marshall, Courtney Walsh,

Joel Garner and Curtly Ambrose complimented 'The Windies' batting strength, headed by the great Barbadian opening batsmen Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes.
And of course Andy Roberts one of the fearsome four in the victorious 1975 Prudential World Cup West Indian team.
Joel Garner
Sir Garry

The team was watched with pride by the great sportsman Sir Garfield Sobers

The West Indies has never before or since had a team like the one mentioned here and we pay tribute to some off our GREATS!!

We should take time to resurrect memories of those great players, Frank Worrell, for example, that “Dear son of memory, great heir of fame.” Merely thinking of his prowess is in itself nostalgic; together with Clyde Walcott and Everton Weekes, that trio immortalized the supremacy of the unforgettable Three W’s.

A modern day hero must be the West Indies captain Brian Lara, the modern game’s greatest exponent of batsmanship took the burden of all his West Indian people on his shoulders and transformed despair into a triumph.

Brian Lara West Indies captain reaching for a world recordAs Christians around the world celebrated the ascendancy of the Prince of Peace into heaven, there were also celebrations here as the Prince of Port-of-Spain rose to cricketing heights. More info

On Easter Sunday the sheer statistical weight of his second triple hundred speaks for itself, as did his first, the unforgettable 375 at the same Antigua Recreation Ground ten years ago that was then Test cricket’s record score.

This Easter week end Lara went to the summit of cricket becoming the first man to make a quadruple-century in a Test innings. Lara’s unconquered 400 proclaimed beyond doubt his status as the modern game’s No.1 player.
