I should know better. But I am actually going to take in this match instead of the CPL. Worse yet, I actually reschedule my work hours to catch the game.  :(

I forgot there was a game today. I read the Guardian and I jump.


On paper not a bad team. But refused to get excited by TT football. Is like following the WI cricket team. Just settle in and enjoy the pull stones.

Not at all. Inter island cricket in the WI is considered Domestic by Wisden.

This was definitely Domestic but not regional. Or perhaps it's semantics.
But I said FC and this was definitely FC.

It was a First Class match, but neither domestic nor regional. It's usually described as simply a Tour Match.

and First Class!!!!   ;D

I guess if you weren't in TT in those days, you would not know. It''s not on youtube or anything.

But when TT realized the batsmen weren't taking the game seriously, it became ridiculous, one spinner tried to bowl a bouncer.

All the batsmen started begging for a chance to bowl. You will see they had very economical overs - impressive for batsmen if you don't know the real story. ;-)

Guys, Sheldon was one of the nicest senior players in QRC. He was real approachable. He interacted with the lower formers and joked with them. Stephen Gomez was another fun guy. Remembered him playing scooch with us. Sheldon was an excellent striker. Scored plenty goal for  us in his senior year. But his heart was in cricket. He was on the TT U-19 team. He, Bernad Julien, Richard Gabriel made the TT Shell Shield team. But he could never get off the mark in the regional games. He made about 3 consecutive ducks. It messed up his cinfidence. But when the WI played TT, he was selected 12th man because of his excellent fielding. It was real painful for we QRC boys. But he is really a nice dude.



What you are saying about Sheldon does not surprise me. I interviewed his brother Larry back around 1996/97. The man was the nicest most down to earth fella you could ever want to meet. And I have interviewed a lot of nice people. No offence to them but Larry was so cool and humble.

I'm gonna go with DfJ Bravo and Jeff Stollmeyer ... although I'm not sure the latter played county cricket.


I don't think either played county cricket.

JS was from POS and Big Bravo from Santa Cruz.

These individuals I am talking about lived on the same street.

In what First Class match in the WI did the batsmen refuse to bat and the player at the opposing end took off his pads and sat next to the stumps and the Umpire.

Not Tall Man.

Any more hints and I will just be giving the answer.

They were both considered all rounders, scored Test centuries and played county cricket. Both went into coaching after cricket.
Both have scored double centuries in FC cricket.
