West Indies cricket legend, Sir Wes Hall has expressed full support for the idea of cricket academies being the “finishing schools” for cricketers with talent and technique.
Speaking at a ceremony following The University of the West Indies (The UWI) Vice-Chancellor’s Cricket Match at the 3Ws Oval at the Cave Hill Campus in Barbados recently, the former fast bowler reminded the audience that it had always been the vision of his mentor, Sir Frank Worrell, that there should be “a synergistic approach between education and sport.”
Barbadian opener Kraigg Brathwaite will captain the West Indies team in its two Test matches against Bangladesh. This was announced today as the Cricket West Indies selection panel named a 15-man squad for the short series.
The release read, "The WINDIES will also be without Test and ODI Captain, Jason Holder who has a partial thickness tear of the subscapularis tendon in his shoulder and will undergo physiotherapy and rehabilitation in Barbados."
