Former West Indies fast bowler Sir Wes Hall was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame during the lunch break on the opening day of the Sabina Park Test between West Indies and Australia.

He became the fourth cricketer to receive the honour this year after Betty Wilson, Anil Kumble and Martin Crowe.

Hall, 77, received his commemorative cap from fellow countryman and Hall of Famer Courtney Walsh, and is now the 18th cricketer from the Caribbean to be bestowed with the award.

Hall, who played 48 Tests for West Indies between 1958 and 1969, said he was “privileged” and “honoured” to receive the award which put him in the company of the “many greats of the game”.

Hall took 192 Test wickets at an average of 26.38.

Overall, he played 170 first-class matches, collecting 546 wickets.
