Testing time


Share post:

THIS WEEKEND will almost certainly be historic. That’s because either a West Indian or Englishman could have the honour of scoring the 100th Test hundred at Kensington Oval.

In 50 matches at the Oval dating back to January 1930, 99 tons have been scored including two triple hundreds, the highest being Hanif Mohammad’s monumental 337 for Pakistan in 1958.

Collis King, the former YMPC, Barbados and West Indies all-rounder, told MIDWEEK SPORT, he hoped a West Indian who achieved the feat.

“It is natural for me to want the honour to go to a West Indian. I am not happy with how we have been playing but my heart is with the boys and I hope that it is one of them.
