Picking the Spin from the Rough – stuff well worth reading
A few items to while a way an hour or so this week:
Abhishek Mukherjee profiles former West Indies cricketers, Herbert Chang and Alphonso Roberts for Cricket Country; and on the same website, Arunabha Sengupta identifies the link between my favourite author, Agatha Christie and West Indies cricket.
The New York Times provides a profile of Jermaine Lawson and his life in Brooklyn; and in the Barbados Nation, cricketer-turned-singer/songwriter, Omari Banks is profiled, alongside a video interview.
RM Austin has written an essay entitled: ‘The Importance of Cricket to the West Indian People’; Bharath Ramaraj has recalled West Indies’ first ever Test win; the Sportskeeda website has looked back to when West Indies cricket ruled the world; Dr Rudi Webster selected 5 Tests which made an indelible impression on WI cricket; and Richard H Thomas has reflected upon the golden summer of 1976.
And finally, this week’s installment of You Are the Umpire features England Coach, Peter Moores.
