Out with Old, in with New!

Because he deserves much leeway for services rendered, even though he failed against England recently, Shiv should simply have already been told by ... Clive Lloyd, ...

Sad But Realistic

The death of Australian left-handed international opener Phillip Joel Hughes has hit us very hard indeed. Seldom does this happen in our sport, even if practically similar situations could occur any time a relatively faster bowler is plying his trade.

Crofty: 60 And Counting

I am 60 this week, so let us indulge. Have a brandy on me! Cheers! I often wondered if born on “Ides of March” - March 15 – when Julius Caesar was butchered by his so-called friends, was an omen. Despite severe external stimuli, with great efforts to destroy me, personally and professionally, I am still here, fully vertical and very well, planning 60 more.

Dowe Will Remember Freddo!

Sabina Park, January, 1972. Jamaica finally declared their mammoth first innings just before tea on the 2nd day of this 4-day match, with the score over 450.

Tribute To Roy Fredericks

The death of Roy Clifton Fredericks, "Freddo" to those who knew him well, was something of a shock to me. I certainly knew that he had been suffering from throat cancer, but I also was led to believe that he was recovering well after having surgery in the United States of America late last year.

Queen's College Cricket History


Queen's College (QC) has been the leading high school in Guyana for many decades, along with its principal academic rival St Stanislaus. A boys-only school until 1975, Queen's College's playing field was large enough for three cricket matches simultaneously, with two pavilions, at one time.

Charlie Jones Of Malteenoes

Many of the cricketers who represented Guyana in its somewhat distant colonial past are unknown or forgotten today, even by ardent followers of the game. This is particularly the case of players in the era before the Second World War. Among such players is Charles Ernest Llewellyn Jones.
