[In my imagination, all the players in the quote above- Smith, Troughton, Deacon, Gauvinier, Norman- are black West Indies players.]
Commerce keeps raising her unlovely head in this beautiful game but who am I to disparage illusions of their gold?
But then the team like West Indies rescues the game of cricket once in a while from their clutches. I think many Sri Lankans were happy to see WI win the T20WC on the night of October 7 2012.
Batting of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels over the past week brought back memories of Vivian Richards, Clive Lloyd and the late Roy Fredericks.
Thank you, West Indies once again for splendid, care-free cricket and, even more, for Gangnam Style celebration after that.
