WEST INDIES CRICKETERS paid tribute to the late great Muhammad Ali yesterday.

A day after the boxing legend was buried, the Caribbean side opted to have gloves on the field during a practice session ahead of their latest match in the Ballr Cup tri-nation series.

The stumps at the bowler’s end at the Conaree Ground in St Kitts carried a pair of gloves in memory of Ali, the former three-time world heavyweight champion who is widely acknowledged as the greatest boxer of all time.
