As we approach the 60th anniversary of the famous Tied Test, this year’s Frank Worrell Memorial Lecture promises to be special, in honour of the great man who led the West Indies team in that match.

On Monday 16th November , Ricky Skerritt, President of Cricket West Indies, will deliver the feature address titled “Reforming Cricket West Indies – For Improved On-Field Results” as we remember Sir Frank Worrell, the first Black man to be appointed captain of the West Indies team.

In December 1960, Worrell led the team on tour of Australia and history was created when the first Test at the Gabba in Brisbane ended in a memorial tie.

It was the start of a series which would go down in history as the one “which saved Test cricket and kept it alive”.

This is the 20th anniversary of the annual lecture, and it would normally be held to an audience at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies – where Sir Frank is buried overlooking the Three Ws Oval – alongside his other famous team-mates Sir Clyde Walcott and Sir Everton Weekes.

However, due to COVID-19 protocols Mr Skerritt will deliver his address virtually.

It will be held on Monday, November 16 at 8:30pm (7:30pm Jamaica Time) and will also be available on UWI TV.
