Walsh speaks to young cricketers in Grenada

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, CMC – Former West Indies cricket captain Courtney Walsh said he is happy to support the initiative of former wicketkeeper Junior Murray to start a cricket academy.

Walsh, who is in Grenada to support the academy and participate in the inaugural Junior Murray Celebrity cricket match, said that he will always make himself available to support the sport in the region.

Walsh will join Murray, former West Indies leg-spinner Rawl Lewis and Thomas Kentish, the former Dominica and Windward Islands off-spinner in a Junior Murray team to play against a Prime Minister’s XI in a Twenty20 match today.

The game, which will be played at Progress Park in the eastern parish of St Andrew, forms part of the activities marking Grenada’s 40th Anniversary of Independence.

“It’s a pleasure to be part of the new Junior Murray initiative and Sunday’s match,” said Walsh. “Grenada is one of my favourite places to visit and whenever there is an opportunity I don’t pass on it.”

The match will be played at Progress Park, a first class venue used as a practice ground during the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.
