Richie Richardson and Teams Play Cricket in Port Moresby

PORT MORESBY - West Indian cricket great Richie Richardson will lead a three-member group, including captain Dwayne Bravo and pace man Kemar Roach, to Port Moresby for this month’s Motor Vehicle Insurance Limited-sponsored Don’t Drink and Drive Legends Bash promotion.

Richardson, 51, pictured, from Antigua, played for the West Indies from 1983-1996. He was a flamboyant batsman and superb player of fast bowling.

He was famous for his wide-brimmed maroon hat which he wore in preference to a helmet against even the fastest bowlers. Richardson captained the West Indies in 24 Tests between 1991  and 1995 when he took over from Viv Richards, winning 11, losing six, and the rest ending in draws.

The trio arrive on Wednesday week, with Roach and Bravo leaving on Sept 14 for the T20 Champions League Trophy. Richardson, who is the West Indies team manager, stays on until Independence Day.

A media conference is scheduled on the day they arrive at Airways Hotel with a sponsored fun day with the players.Cricket PNG has modified the format for this year, with teams to play beach cricket instead of the usual T20 fixtures.

Friday week is the Legends Beach Cricket event where teams will take part in a four-team tournament that will include sponsors and guest players at Motureia Park, in Hanuabada. EMTV will broadcast the matches. [TheNational]
