Acknowledging the island's immense contribution to the world cricket, the International Cricket Council has inducted six Barbados giants, including Sir Garfield Sobers and the three Ws, into the Cricket Hall of Fame at the Kensington Oval.
Frank Worrell, Everton Weekes, Clyde Walcott, Garfield Sobers, Gordon Greenidge and Malcolm Marshall were inducted in the panel at a special ceremony during the tea interval on the first day of the fourth Test between the West Indies and England.
Commemorative caps were presented to the players, family members and representatives by the West Indies Cricket Board President (WICB) and International Cricket Council (ICC) director Dr Julian Hunte in front of a large and appreciative crowd.
Remarkably, the six players represent just over 10 per cent of the total initial intake of 55 players into the Hall of Fame, a joint venture between the ICC and the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA).
Elated with the honour, Sobers said, "I totally enjoyed my playing days and I am thrilled to be honoured here today in my home country."
