Goodbye to David Murray


The Harris Files:  by David Harris 

November 28, 2022

Former Barbados and West Indies wicketkeeper David Murray died over the weekend a couple of feet from his home at Station Hill, St. Michael.

Murray, 72 was the son of the legendary West Indian batsman, Sir Everton Weekes.

The diminutive Murray played 19 Tests and effected 57 catches and five stumpings, and scored 601 runs at 21.46 including three half-centuries. He kept wickets in 34 Test innings, which gave him a tally of 1.82 dismissals per innings. Murray also played ten One Day Internationals. (ODI)

He played 114 first-class matches and 4,503 runs at 30.84 including seven hundred; additionally, he pouched 293 catches and stumped 30 batsmen in 176 innings.

In 1978 when Australia visited the Caribbean Clive Lloyd led the West Indies to easy wins in the first two Tests. The selectors, however, decided to drop Desmond Haynes, Richard Austin, and Deryck Murray for the third Test at Bourda because of their association with World Series Cricket.

As a result, Lloyd resigned in protest, Alvin Kallicharran was appointed captain, and West Indies fielded five debutants – which included Murray

.During the West Indies visit to Australia in 1981/82 Murray broke a finger during a tour match, but sensing competition from Jeffery Dujon he decided to play on in the Tests more so because there were already speculations that Dujon was a significant better batsman.

At the end of the Test series, the selectors decided to select Dujon over Murray for the subsequent ODIs in the tournament that also involved Australia and Pakistan.

According to reports in the print media, Murray wasn’t pleased and was reported to have said.

“I played two Tests back-to-back with a broken finger, and they didn’t pick me, although I was fitter than before. They wanted me to go with the water cart and I said, ‘Hey, I am not doing that I should be playing".

Murray never played an international match again. In 1983 Murray joined a group of cricketers who went on the first rebel tour to South Africa and repeated the action the next year.

May he rest in peace

THE CARIBBEAN CRUISE INDUSTRY


The Cruise Industry is projected to continue to grow throughout 2019 with an estimated 30 million travelers, with an increase by 6% from 28.2 million in 2018. In the coming year 18 new ships are on order from 'Caribbean Lines International Association' CLIA Cruise lines. A total of 272 CLIA-member Cruise ships are projected to be in operation by June 2019.

In addition, the industry is the fastest-growing category in the leisure travel market. The industry has experienced an average annual passenger growth rate of approximately 7% per annum, beginning In 1980. As for cruising, an increase of 62% was achieved between 2005 and 2015. Is the Caribbean benefiting?

In recent months, many Tourism Ministers and representatives of the Caribbean Islands are monitoring this market very closely, with some overlooking it in detail, through indept discussion, data and analyst . Many I suppose is wondering why, but as for me, I am fully aware of the

reason. It is because the benefits to cruise Tourism lies in the pockets of the Industry owners and operators and not the Governments or business Entrepreneurs at the destinations.

One might wonder how is the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association/FCCA really representing the various Governments, knowing of the one sided Industry.

When would this be fully reconized by Government Officials.
