Walsh ready to roll back the years

 

Kingston, Jamaica (WICB): Windies bowling legend Courtney Walsh hasn’t ruled out the possibility of tossing down a few overs during Melbourne Cricket Club’s upcoming tour of Bermuda. The Jamaican powerhouse are due to arrive on the Island April 10 to play a series of T20 matches against hosts Somerset Cricket Club and Commercial side Jamaican Association as well as three 50 over matches against the senior national squad.

All matches are to be held at Somerset Cricket Club.

Should the opportunity present itself, Walsh said he would consider suiting up during the tour.

“I still play the odd game here and there in Jamaica just to keep myself active and if the opportunity comes up I might see what I can do,” he told The Royal Gazette. “I can still get it on the other end reasonably good so I’m not complaining. I still enjoy a good game of cricket.”

Walsh will serve in the capacity as manager during Melbourne CC’s tour of the Island.

The man who claimed 519 Test and 227 ODI wickets during a remarkable international career is no stranger to these shores having travelled here in 2006 with fellow Windies greats Lance Gibbs and Richie Richardson to work with the national squad. “My past experiences in Bermuda have been good,” added Walsh. “The players and conditions there are pretty good and we are looking forward to playing against them in those conditions as well.”
