Synopsis: "This book is well worth the read. Ardent cricket enthusiasts, purists and fans are provided with statistics and comments that give credence to Edwards’ assertions, and the reader will be educated about the psychological effect winning and losing has on the psyche of Barbadians and West Indians at home and abroad. Cricket is a game that, to a West Indian, goes ‘beyond the boundary’, and Edwards’ analysis mirrors this concept." Alvin Cummins, BSc, MSc, FSMT, MPhil.

Book Description Tamare House, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Grantley E. Edwards is an ardent cricket fan who as a little boy went to bed with cricket on his mind and woke up the next morning with a bat in his hand. He admired Sir Frank Worrell for his cool demeanour, his leadership skills, his intelligence and his diplomacy. He marvelled at the audacity of Sobers and Kanhai. He often wondered as to whether Hunte and Nurse were dancing or batting. Perhaps they were doing both simultaneously. He admired the power and grace of Hall s bowling and sheer power of his partner Charlie Griffith. This book seeks to chronicle the glory days of Barbados cricket from 1960-1990. It starts from the premise that these radiant days gave rise to West Indies global dominance during this period, and this premise is in turn based on C.L.R. James assertion. The famous Trinidadian historian and writer asserted that West Indies cricket is Barbados cricket, hence, the dominance of Barbados which was reflected in the West Indies. This work entirely accepts C.L.R. James description of the cricketing brand that is defined as Barbadian, and by extension West Indian. He described this brand as an attacking, exciting and attractive spectacle of fast bowling and batting. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781514671047
