T20 high


DARREN?SAMMY?and his world champion T20 men came, saw and conquered England yesterday and the thousands of West Indians fans, ranging from the Banks girls to cricketing knights, loved it all.
Sir Garry Sobers, Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Everton Weekes, Sir Wesley Hall, and other former Test players such as Seymour Nurse, David Murray, Courtney Browne and Alvin Greenidge were in the stands watching the West Indies sail to a five-wicket victory and series clincher at Kensington Oval yesterday.
Banks calendar girl Faith Callender led a team of Banks girls making an appearance at the Oval, while ace jockey Patrick Husbands had a marvellous time as the major attraction in the Party Stand.
Husbands, who rode Major Marvel to victory in last weekend’s Sandy Lane Gold Cup, was riding again but this time on a mechanical bull to the delight of the scores of British and Trinidadian visitors.
West Indies Cricket Board (WICB)?president Dave Cameron watched from his presidential box, along with Sir Wesley, former Barbados Cricket Association vice-president Conde Riley and British visitors Philip and Ann Prior, who were shot on March 10 last year on Hincks Street, The City, when they were returning to the ship from a Commonwealth Day service at St Michael’s Cathedral.
