THEY WERE DESCRIBED as a dedicated, determined and dynamic duo among the world’s fearsome fast bowlers.
And on Thursday night Sir Wesley Hall and Charlie Griffith were honoured for their successes with an exhibition at the Cricket Legends of Barbados, fittingly entitled Pace like Fire.
Surrounded by outstanding cricketers such as Sir Garfield Sobers, Desmond Haynes, Seymour Nurse, Joel Garner and Ian Bishop, the two former opening bowlers for the West Indies were the toast of the town on a night in which they were remembered through video presentations and lauded in speeches.
Former West Indies player and chairman of the Cricket Legends of Barbados, Ian Bradshaw, said they both served as inspiring role models for young cricketers.
“We hope that salutes such as this can be used to inspire the future generations,” he told the gathering.
