Bajan quintet

There is a saying that when Barbados cricket is strong, West Indies’ cricket is strong and this was evident in the 1960s and beyond when it was a regular feature for five or more Barbadians to be selected in the West Indies Test team.
This changed in the last two decades following the retirement of players such as Malcolm Marshall, Joel Garner, Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes but the good memories of yesteryear were relived at?Kensington Oval yesterday when five Bajans were named in the Windies’ final 11 with fast bowler Jason Holder becoming the 299th West Indian?Test cricketer.
