Sir Vivian Richards has always been the flamboyant face of Cricket, a game that evolved as a sport of patience & perseverance.He was one of the Galdiators of glorious West Indian Cricket era from mid 70s to mid 80s. He caught the eye with his swashbuckling batting style. He earned the title of The King of Cricket.
Though PSL 2 is lackluster due to match fixing scandal & security issues in the country, Sir Viv Richards stands out as a shinning light of the show.
Quetta Gladiators is so lucky to have him in their dug-out. He still exudes that passion and flare which mesmerised cricket lovers of his cricketing days. How could his energy and passion be not felt in the outlook of Quetta Gladiators. And the aging stallion, Kevin Pietersen just did that today. He showed what Sir Viv would have done in his day. And boy, was he not so proud of KP towards the end.
This is the cricket we grew up with and if Greats like Viv pass on the baton with passion as he is showing, then how could you resist cricket.
The King personifies true passion and flare in cricket. He lives on and we are glad he associated himself with Quetta.
Pakistani players involved in match fixing must be made an example of because cricket is part of our lives and they just badly mess that part up.
