Four West Indies greats honoured

February 4, 2009

Four greats of West Indies cricket were honoured in a ceremony hosted by the Jamaican Cricket Association and the WICB. George Headley, Everton Weekes, Garry Sobers and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, the current No. 1 Test batsman, were honoured at the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston on Monday.

The celebration commemorated four unique events – the 100th anniversary of Headley’s birth, the 60th of Weekes’ five consecutive Test centuries, the 50th of Sobers’ 365 not out, and Chanderpaul being named the ICC’s International Player of the Year 2008.

In accepting the award, Weekes thanked the organisers for the “special honour”, while Chanderpaul said he was “delighted” and would be looking to continue the good work in the upcoming series against England.

Headley, who died 25 years ago, was represented by his son Lindie while Sobers was unable to attend.
