AUS VS WI: At Perth’s Optus Stadium, the first of two test match series between West Indies and the hosts Australia has begun. The Windies wore the black armbands throughout play on Day 1 as a mark of respect for former wicketkeeper David Murray, who passed away last week. 

The Windies team was seen sporting the black armbands over their jerseys while competing in a Test match on Australian soil for the first time in over seven years.

Murray, 72, died last week in Barbados, and the Caribbean side wanted to pay their respects. He was Sir Everton Weekes’ (a renowned West Indies batter) son. West Indies players are sporting black armbands as a mark of respect for late goalkeeper David Murray.

Murray was 72. He took part in 10 ODIs and 19 Tests. In the 1981 Boxing Day Test at the MCG, he had a record-breaking nine catches, according to the West Indies cricket team’s official Twitter account.

“I would want to express my profound sympathies to Ricky [Hoyte, David’s son] and the rest of David’s family and friends on behalf of CWI. David was a talented middle-order batsman as well as a superb wicketkeeper.

He had a smile on his face while playing cricket because he enjoyed it so much. Ricky Skerritt, president of Cricket West Indies (CWI), wrote in a tribute to the late player, “He will be remembered as a member of the great West Indies squad that dominated world cricket for more than a decade.”

In the just-finished three-match ODI series against England, Steve Smith excelled. The modern-day batting great was observed during the series using a distinct batting approach; he kept his gaze fixed on the crease and did not shift back and forth. When discussing the modification, Steve Smith said:

“I felt as though I was getting a little too front-on on the back foot in long-form cricket, which is the reason for the alterations. If the ball nips away from you when you’re too close to it, you may follow it. Or you’re not positioning yourself where I needed you to be in order for me to leave the ball.

He Further added, “Where I am at this moment is the pinnacle for me. My body and my hands don’t feel like they have to work as hard to get to the offside. I can just perform in a smooth manner.
