133RD TEST APPEARANCE MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE GUYANA CRICKET BOARD
Thursday 7th July 2011

 May I, on behalf of the executives and members of the Guyana Cricket Board and, indeed, on behalf of the cricketing public of Guyana, extend congratulations to you on equalling the record of the most Test appearances by a West Indies player.

It has been a long journey from your home ground, Bourda, where you made your debut in 1994.
 
During that journey, you have performed in all of the major arenas around the cricketing world, establishing yourself as one of the most consistent and durable batsmen of this era.
 
We who were at Bourda that day in 1994 still remember the excitement we felt when, as a 19 year old, you took that first step and announced to the world that you had earned a place and were ready for international cricket.
 
That long journey must inevitably be physically and mentally tiresome, faced, as you have been, not only by the best bowlers in the world, but from those within who have never fully appreciated your commitment and value to West Indies cricket.
 
We extend our best wishes on your achievement and sincerely hope that you, as in most of your test innings, would soldier on and find the energy and the interest to further contribute to West Indies cricket and to cricket in general.
 
Once again, Congratulations!
