Harris congratulates West Indian cricket icons

That was the opinion expressed by the former senior government minister and now leader of the recently formed People’s Labour Party, PLP, Dr. Timothy Harris.

Harris was in Antigua on Wednesday for the unveiling of a statue in honour of Sir Vivian at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, North Sound, Antigua.

Though Antigua and Barbuda are about to enter what will be a fierce political campaign ahead of general elections, the government there ensured that Wednesday’s event was all embracing, including the Leader of the Opposition, Gaston Browne. Other dignitaries included the Prime Minister, Baldwin Spencer, and former cricket colleagues and opponents, Sir Wes Hall, Sir Ian Botham, Clive Lloyd, Andy Roberts, Curtly Ambrose, Richie Richardson, Stuart Williams and Kieran Powell

Several members of his family, including his mother, were also present.

Dr. Harris, who has been tipped to lead any future government drawn from the current opposition in St. Kitts and Nevis, said it was certainly an honor and privilege to be a part of such a significant and historic occasion.

Harris added that Sir Viv was the focal point of a united Caribbean entity that dominated the world of cricket. An entity, West Indies Cricket team, that saw greats from throughout the region coming together to bring pride, joy and success to all Caribbean people throughout the world.

The politician has offered congratulations to Sir Viv on the unveiling of this well-deserved monument in his honor. He also extended congratulations to Sirs Curtly Ambrose, Richie Richardson and Andy Roberts on their well-deserved knighthoods. They have all brought pride and joy to not only Antigua and Barbuda but the entire region and the world, Harris continued.

Ambrose, Richardson and Roberts were knighted on Friday Morning, 28th February, 2014, just before the start of the first One-Day International encounter between the visiting English team and the West Indies.
