CRICKET AND POLITICS have another knight.

For his sterling contribution to sport and the community, Wesley Winfield Hall has been given a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Sir Wesley, the spearhead of the West Indies pace attack in the 1960s, and a Cabinet Minister in the 1980s, tops the list of nine Barbadians recognised by the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year.

The first West Indian to take a hat-trick in Test cricket, Sir Wesley, the holder of 192 Test scalps, and a former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), has gone beyond the boundaries of cricket.

Full congratulations to Sir Wesley. He has performed extremely well for Barbados, The West Indies, Banks Beer, Cable & Wireless, his constituents, church, friends and family. This recognition is definitely well deserved and severely overdue. I wish Sir Wesley well. May he enjoy his knighthood and may he live a long, healthy, happy and peaceful life. LB.
