Double hit on a legend
West Indies cricket legend Seymour MacDonald Nurse celebrated another big score last Sunday – his 80th birthday.
And yesterday the former Barbados middle order batsman was treated to lunch by two of the greatest successes in his life, twin daughters Roseanne and Cherylanne Nurse, at the Brown Sugar Restaurant, Bay Street.
Folklore had it that Nurse had received his twins in conjunction with one of his batting doubles. However, the twins were born in 1966 after Nurse’s double ton at Kensington in 1965. The batting great later scored his second double in Christ Church, New Zealand, in 1969.
The cheerful Nurse trio was joined at lunch by Seymour’s Empire Club mate Shurland Harte, a staunch club supporter.
