Neighbours and Test cricketers.
« on: June 25, 2019, 08:18:57 PM »
Which two neighbours from TT living on the same street, both ended up playing cricket for the WI.

I only know of one instance but I have a feeling I am about to be surprised. ;-)

 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Actually both Carew and WR grew up in Woodbrook so you never know. But as you are not sure. But points for proximity. LOL

HINT: They were both batsmen but did not play for the WI at the same time.

No. But good educated guess. But I think only Ganga from Barrackpore scored a Test century.

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.

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.

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.
