Sticky Wicket West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame

Sticky Wicket West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame

Kelly Holding was given the honour of organising the Sticky Wicket West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in May 2007.  The event, held at the Stanford Cricket Ground in Antigua, West Indies, saw some of the greatest West Indies cricketers come out to honour the two inductees, the late Sir Clyde Walcott and Rev. Wes Hall.  The Sticky Wicket West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame was created by Antiguan financier Sir Allen Stanford in 2003 as a way to pay tribute to the outstanding contributions to cricket that have been made by individuals over the years. New inductees are installed every two years amid much pomp and circumstance. The first group of inductees in 2003 was Sir Everton Weekes, Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Garfield Sobers, George Headley, Malcolm Marshall, Clive Lloyd, Lance Gibbs, Michael Holding, Andy Roberts, Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose and Brian Lara. Sir Frank Worrell and Ridley Jacobs were inducted in 2005.
