West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite returned Monday morning to where it all began for him –– Milton Lynch Primary School –– and thrilled the young aspiring cricketers there with his presence. Not only did he bring inspiration, but Brathwaite also brought cricket gear which he presented to the excited lads.
Brathwaite who attended the then named Christ Church Boys School in the early 1990s, gave the attentive young cricketers several life and sporting tips and encouraged them always to give of their best in all their endeavours.
Brathwaite who went on to Combermere and came under the guidance of highly regarded coach and former Barbados pacer Roddy Estwick, will leave shortly for Sri Lanka on his first Test tour. He has so far played four One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals. Brathwaite will be one of seven Barbadians on the squad led by newly appointed captain, Jason Holder.
Here, Brathwaite presents bat and gloves to Milton Lynch wicketkeeper/batsman Isaiah Folkes.
