Cricket’s an Englishman’s sport. Americans don’t mess with Cricket. They’re baseball lovers, no doubt, but cricket- nah. In the West Indies however, Cricket’s a big deal, especially for those who were privy to the likes of Richie Richardson, Courtney Walsh, Brian Lara, Curtly Ambrose and the lot of the 90’s. In recent time, Dwayne Bravo’s given the sport a little cool factor but for the most part, Cricket’s appeal is nowhere close to say, basketball. On Monday, Barbados-born, international superstar, Rihanna, may have changed all that though.

Perception is a hell of a thing. One appearance by the ‘Man Down’ singer at the ICC Cricket World Cup in England and the world’s already buzzing. Rihanna showed up and showed out in all white gear, throwing her support behind the West Indies. The team played Sri Lanka and despite the fact that they succumbed to defeat, Rih’s appearance at the game may actually bring some much needed publicity to a sport that seems to have fallen in youth appeal, over the years. West Indies Cricket coach, Roddy Estwick who taught Rihanna in school back in Barbados, met up with the superstar during her visit. He said her visit definitely boosted the team’s spirit.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
