Oh, what sweet nostalgia!
The memories could not help but come flooding back.
Sir Garry Sobers’ 365 at Kingston, Jamaica against Pakistan in 1958.
Seymour Nurse’s 258 at Lancaster Park, New Zealand, in 1968.
Charlie Griffith’s fiery 6 for 36 at Leeds, England in 1966.
Wes Hall’s pre-Christmas five-wicket gift to the Caribbean against Australia at Brisbane in 1960.
David Murray’s electricity behind the stumps every time he stepped onto a cricket field.
They were all there today.
Many of those who have brought joy to the hearts of millions of West Indian cricket lovers were present at the Cricket Legends of Barbados Museum on Fontabelle, St Michael, as West Indies Cricket Board president Dr. Julian Hunte and chief executive officer Michael Muirhead toured the facility.
Stories were told, memorabilia viewed, memories rekindled and the future contemplated as the cricketing greats rubbed shoulders once again.
