ENGLAND lost in Barbados but hundreds of visiting English cricket fans have been winning moments to treasure with West Indies legend, Sir Garfied Sobers.

During the past week, more than 120 lucky English visitors got the opportunity to meet and greet Sir Garry during a special function at the SeaBreeze Hotel.
