Former West Indies pace bowler Curtly Ambrose has been chosen for the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame. The much-feared right-arm bowler played for the Caribbean team between 1988 till his retirement in 2000.
The ICC, on Monday, announced its decision to include Ambrose in the prestigious list of players that include Sydney Barnes, Bishan Bedi, Alec Bedser, Richie Benaud, Allan Border, Ian Botham, Geoffrey Boycott amongst other greats, . Ambrose is considered one of the most lethal bowlers of his generations and has 225 ODI wickets and 405 Test scalps to show for his reputation.
"Well for me personally it is a privilege and an honour to be inducted in the Hall of Fame. 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," said Ambrose.
The 6 feet 7 inch player was joined by 82-year-old Alan Davidson, Belinda Clark and late Frederick Spofforth of Australia.
