Former West Indies Cricketer Gets Knighthood

The recent announcement in Barbados therefore, that Rev. Wes Hall has been made a Knight Bachelor, as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for 2012, is a welcome sign that there is still hope for our icons and legends.

Here in St. Kitts, Kim Collins has been the most celebrated athlete, with a stand at the Silver Jubilee Stadium named in his honour; and there is also the Kim Collins Highway. At Warner Park, and this came only a few years ago, there is now the C.A. Paul Southwell Media Centre, the Pam Tyson Netball Complex, and the Calvin Wilkin Players Pavilion. Over in Molineux, one can find the Edgar Gilbert Sports Facility.

Over in Nevis, after too many years of pleading, finally there is now a facility named in honour of Elquimedo Willett, the first person from the Leeward Islands to play for the West Indies Cricket Team. The former Grove Park in Charlestown, now carries his name.

Attempts a few years before, to rename Government Road in his honour, resulted in such bitter debate that the government at the time was forced to back down.

Not so in Barbados it seems, because folks there are making sure that their sports legends get the very best. So now the time has come for Wes Hall.

Sir Wesley, as he will formally be known, played in 48 Tests from 1958 to 1969 and following his illustrious on-field career, the affable Hall served as West Indies Team Manager and Selector. He was elected President of the WICB in 2001 and served until 2003.

Hall is the second former WICB president to be knighted after the late Sir Clyde Walcott.

Hall, 74, started his cricket as a wicket-keeper and excelled at Combermere School in his native Barbados. He later went on to be become one of the most feared fast bowlers of his era and one of the most popular and affable cricketers in the world. He is a true Caribbean man and represented both Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago in the regional First Class competition.

The famed fast bowler took 192 wickets and was first West Indian to take hat-trick in Test cricket, a feat he achieved against India on his debut in 1958.

President of the West Indies Cricket Board Dr. Julian Hunte has sent congratulations to the legendary former West Indies fast bowler and WICB President.

“There are few in West Indies cricket who could be more deserving of such an illustrious honour as Wes Hall,” President Hunte said.

“Wes has been a true and unwavering servant of cricket who fought for equality for West Indies on and off the field,” Dr. Hunte observed.

“He laboured for our game and our people because of his love for cricket and West Indians and so diverse are his talents and skills that he has also served Barbados and the region in politics, religion and as a widely acclaimed and ever-popular speaker,” Dr. Hunte noted.

“Today the West Indies cricket family stand with extreme pride in saluting our treasured icon as he receives this most esteemed recognition for his contribution to sport and community,” Dr Hunte said.

The question now is, when would we in St. Kitts and Nevis elevate our sportsmen to similar levels? The list, with those who are deserving is left to be completed by the public, but what is certain, is that there are many who would qualify, if only we did not think such lofty elevations are only reserved for politicians and public sector officials.
