Sir Cuthbert Gordon Greenidge has advised young cricketers to avoid taking shortcuts and work harder to strengthen their skills.

The former opening batsman, who represented the West Indies in Test and One-Day cricket for 17 years, was speaking yesterday just after being knighted by Governor General Dame Sandra Mason at Government House. He was one of ten Barbadians who were presented with their insignia after being awarded in the Queen’s 2020 New Year Honours.

Sir Gordon credited his colleagues, who he said knew their roles and were committed to the sport.

“It was a credit to all of those who knew of their worth and the job they were given. Everyone knew about their responsibility and that made everything a lot easier for everybody because everyone was so committed to the job,” he said.

The 70-year-old said excelling at Test cricket and not just shorter forms was a good way to achieve better results.
