Barbados Pride have finally gotten their hands on the Headley/Weekes Trophy for capturing this year’s Cricket West Indies first-class tournament.

Legendary all-rounder Sir Garry Sobers, Barbados’ only living National Hero, presented the trophy to Pride captain Kraigg Brathwaite during a luncheon event hosted last weekend by the Barbados Cricket Association.

The tournament was halted after eight rounds following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the region and Pride were subsequently declared winners after topping the standings with 134.8 points.

At lease the Leewards produced four great West Indies players, Roberts, Richards, Richardson and Ambrose.
Leewards won 3 , tied 1.
The Windwards has not produce any known greats, and has never won a regional 4 day tournament.
The Combined Islands won one.

Barbados has arguably the strongest bowling reserves to serve them the next decade...both in pace, medium pace and spin.

The problem with Barbados is the lazy unaderachieving veteran batsmen like Carter, Brooks and Hope at FC LEVEL.

The batting is led by Mayers, Chase Brathwaite and Dowrich and Brathwaite the real FC bully has grown lazy....but right now Brathwaite is blazing the trail in the local 20/20 tournament so maybe his batting will be more enterprising.

Shai has not played 4-day cricket for Barbados since 2017, that was discussed on Mason and guest last evening.
The same goes for Pooran, who has not represented T&T in the longest version since about 2014.
