Cricket lovely cricket.

Me ent care about Marshall and them.  To me the West indies had three Great Fast bowlers,

1- Michael Holding  On one tour of India he took 19 wickets for 20 runs.

2- Andy Roberts

3- Wes Hall

Every West Indian player except those who toured SA in the Packer scandal, have did their best to make all WI very conscious of cricket in the White world.

It is so wonderful, that daily I can lay on my bed and watch the game 24/7. The game is in my DNA.  I started playing Windball Cricket.  I was promoted to the practice with the hard ball, but never made the team.  I probably played two matches.  There was about 8 teams in the St David's area.  There was also a team in Mt Moritz. That Mt Moritz Cricket team, was made up of all White Grenadians.

I then graduated to being ah scorer. Then an umpire. I was kinda famous as an umps.  When ah give ah person out, there was no questioning my decision.  I was good.  Took tons of training to become an umpire.
