Hundreds pay tribute to Morton
Runako Morton played his final innings today.
Family, friends and fans turned out in their numbers to pay tribute to the fallen former West Indies cricketer at a funeral service at the First Church of the Open Bible in San Fernando, Trinidad.
Several prominent cricketers, past and present, were in attendance, including former ex-West Indies captain Brian Lara and West Indies Players Association president Dinanath Ramnarine.
Ramnarine read the eulogy while Lara paid a tribute to Morton, who died last week Sunday following a vehicle accident in central Trinidad.
A second official funeral service will be held by the Nevis Island administration at the Elquemedo Willett Park at Charlestown on Saturday at 1 p.m.
