Wes Hall knighted

(Barbados Nation) Cricket and politics have another knight.

For his sterling contribution to sport and the community, Wesley Winfield Hall has been given a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Sir Wesley, the spearhead of the West Indies pace attack in the 1960s, and a Cabinet Minister in the 1980s, tops the list of nine Barbadians recognised by the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year.

The first West Indian to take a hat-trick in Test cricket, Sir Wesley, the holder of 192 Test scalps, and a former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), has gone beyond the boundaries of cricket.
