It Is Vivian Richards, ‘The Master Blaster’ Celebrates His 66th Birthday Today. Happy Birthday, Viv.

by Anura Guruge

IVA Richards — Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards, a man that has given me much joy, entertainment and inspiration. He was the man.

That great HOT Summer of 1979 and he missed the Lord’s Test (which I attended, on the Saturday), because he had ‘mono’, no doubt from kissing too many girls.

He has done much for cricket, his native Antigua, the ‘West Indies’ and the cricketing world in general.

I feel honored that I got to meet him, in person, a number of times.

Happy Birthday, Viv. Thanks for all the GREAT Times.
