Hall inducted into ICC Hall of Fame
West Indies’ former tearaway fast bowler Wesley Hall was inducted into the International Cricket Council (ICC) Hall of Fame. The induction raised the tally of cricketers from the Caribbean to 18 in an illustrious field of 80 players who have been bestowed with the prestigious award for their services to the sport.
Hall received his commemorative cap from fellow Hall of Famer Courtney Walsh during lunch on the opening day of the second Test between the West Indies and Australia at Sabina Park on Thursday.
Also present at the ceremony were ICC Director and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron, Clive Lloyd and Everton Weekes. Hall is the fourth cricketer this year to be inducted into the Hall of Fame after Betty Wilson, Anil Kumble and Martin Crowe, who were inducted earlier this year during the World Cup.
