Two West Indies fast bowling greats have been inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
Courtney Walsh (left) and Joel Garner were two of four icons receiving their commemorative caps from ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat in a ceremony on Wednesday evening that was part of the ICC Awards.
Walsh, who ended his career as the highest West Indies wicket-taker with 519 scalps in 132 Tests, said he was humbled by the honour.
“The most memorable part of my career was hearing my name called for the first time for West Indies and I’m honoured to have been named in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame,” said the 47-year-old Jamaican.
Garner, meanwhile, raked in 259 wickets from 58 Tests.
“I’m honoured to receive this award. This is one of the greatest awards I have received,” he said. (AP Picture)
