Ambrose bowled over

HARD WORK REWARDED: Curtly Ambrose

FAST BOWLING legend Curtly Ambrose has been inducted into the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Hall of Fame. Ambrose, who formed a lethal partnership with Courtney Walsh, took 405 Test wickets at an average of 20.99.

Among the many highlights of his long career was when he took an amazing six wickets for just 24 runs to bowl England out for 46 in Trinidad in 1993, and seven wickets for 25 runs against Australia in 1993 to win the series for his side. He also played 176 ODIs, taking 225 wickets at an average of 24.12.

"It is a privilege and an honour to be inducted in the Hall of Fame," Ambrose said. "In the history of cricket there have been many great cricketers and to be part of that elite group, I'm very happy and very humbled.

"I never thought that this day would come. This only tells me that all the hard work I put in throughout my career did not go unnoticed. I see this also as a just reward for all the joy and happiness that I may have brought to cricket and cricketers alike."
