Cricket West Indies (CWI) President, Ricky Skerrit has hailed “a remarkable three weeks of cricket” which culminated recently with West Indies’ capture of the first-ever Richards-Botham Trophy.
The regional team trounced England by 10 wickets inside four days of the decisive third Test at the National Stadium in Grenada after chasing a paltry 28, following the touring side’s collaspe for 120 in their second innings. England had resumed the morning on 103 for eight with little hope of saving the game.

“On behalf of CWI and the West Indies supporters around the world, I want to express heartfelt congratulations to Captain Kraigg Brathwaite, Head Coach Phil Simmons and the entire team on what were truly outstanding efforts from start to finish,” he said.

“It was a remarkable three weeks of cricket which saw our teams battle hard to earn draws in the first and second matches and win the final,” Skerrit said.
