Almost two days after a blind Guyanese cricketer died in the north of the island, reports have surfaced of another incident, this time involving a visually impaired Barbadian cricketer.
Reports are that John Reeves, captain of the Barbados blind cricket team, collapsed on the pitch of the Mindo Phillip Park Sunday at about 2 p.m. after scoring a century against Trinidad and Tobago’s blind cricket team.
Reeves is currently at Victoria Hospital and is recovering “well”, a cricket official told St. Lucia News Online.
The official said Reeves underwent several tests and doctors are now awaiting the results to determine the cause of his illness.
On Friday, Gordan Sandiford, 28, of the Guyana blind cricket team, died after he encountered difficulties in the water, on a beach in the north of the island.
