Sir Carl is back for Masters
Carl Hooper, for so long a darling among Barbadian cricket fans, is set to grace Kensington Oval again over the next few days.
The former West Indies captain will almost certainly create a buzz in the stands during the second CLOBI World Masters tournament that gets going this afternoon.
West Indies open the competition against England at 4 p.m. while the second match of the day brings together Sri Lanka and India at 8 p.m.
While Hooper has hardly played any cricket at a serious level since retiring from the international game seven years ago, the 43-year-old hardly appears to have lost any of his graceful touch.
Here, he looks confident in playing a defensive stroke during a practice session at the indoor nets of the 3Ws Oval yesterday.
