Wanderers honours Test trio
JASON HOLDER and Christopher Jordan have a few things in common apart from being former Charles F. Broome students and fast-bowling all-rounders in Test cricket.
One of them is that they have both represented Wanderers Cricket Club and on Wednesday night, they were back in the club’s Dayrells Road pavilion where they were honoured, along with West Indies women’s cricketer, Hayley Matthews.
Holder and Matthews, who came through the club’s junior cricket programme and Jordan (right), who played for Wanderers in 2010, each had a photograph added to the 138-year-old club’s international gallery in a ceremony witnessed by scores of supporters, relatives and the media.
The honorees all represent different teams, with Holder and Jordan likely to face off against each other in the third Test between West Indies and England starting at Kensington Oval today.
Matthews missed the ceremony because she had left Barbados earlier in the day with the West Indies women’s team to attend the ICC Women’s Championship in Sri Lanka. (SB)
