CARIBBEAN - cricket


THE APPOINTMENT of Edward “Teddy” Griffith as president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has been hailed by his predecessor, Reverend Wes Hall.

He said Griffith, a former Barbados and Jamaica cricketer, who defeated Antiguan Clarvis Joseph by a vote of 9-4 at a WICB meeting in Antigua on Tuesday, combined marketing skills with a cricketing background.

“At this stage of our development, with a very young team of brilliant individuals and our finances beginning to look a lot better, it is really fantastic that someone like Teddy Griffith has become president. I think he will do well,” Hall said yesterday.

“He understands the cricket side of things and with his business, finance and marketing acumen, he has all the requirements for the job. “His ability to act and to speak authoritatively on international matters will be another plus. He has a very good executive body and a good board,” declared Hall.

His 400 not out off 582 balls came in just under 13 hours and included 43 fours and four sixes. In doing so, he eclipsed the previous batting record of 380 established just six months ago by Australia’s Matthew Hayden.

It took the side to 752 for five declared – the second highest score in West Indies history and the highest by any country against England.
