वेस्टइंडीज़ टीम में श्वेत खिलाड़ी

By Staff
वेस्टइंडीज़ टीम में श्वेत खिलाड़ी

It was during the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean that he decided to move to the land of his parents. Within a year of playing cricket for Jamaica he was included in the squad to tour New Zealand where he made his test debut.

His inclusion had divided opinion. For racial reasons some people objected to Brendan Nash's selection. No white man had played for the West Indies since Geoff Greenidge represented the region in 1973. Others were sceptical of a player who in effect was an Australian reject.

But his performances in New Zealand suggested he could add some much needed resilience to the West Indies batting line-up. And it's hoped his professional attitude, honed in the tough Australian system, will rub off on his new colleagues.

It's been a long time since the West Indies had a team to be proud of. They haven't won a test series against England in fifteen years. If Brendan Nash can help stop the rot, the cricket loving public in the Caribbean probably won't mind what colour he is.
