Earlier this year the West Indies became the 3rd cricket playing nation to achieve the milestone of 500 Test Matches.
To commemorate the event, and to reflect on the history of WI international cricket, this programme – from wVentRadio in St Lucia – takes us on the journey that began with WIndies’ earliest pre-Test days of the late 1890s and early tours of England in 1900, 1906 & 1923; and follows the team from its Test debut in 1928 through to the present day.
Tony Cozier and Reds Perreira – the Caribbean’s most celebrated and cherished cricket broadcasters – look back across those 86 years at the ups and downs, the highs and lows of the West Indies; at the successes, and the failures; remembering the tears of joy, and anguish; and the celebrations, and the recriminations – and they put it all in perspective within the great and glorious story which is the history of West Indies cricket.
This is essential listening.
