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.

  1. Lucian please let's have an open mind set. When one sense is down the other senses are in overdrive. This makes anything possible. At least thank good for sight.

  2. Bush man please hold your corner ok. They Are Humans Just you, And Can Do Any THINGS They Put Hearts To do. Their impairment has nothing to do with what they can do. Nothing just leave them alone idiot.

  3. I am thinking that the blind would be battered with bruised and soreness from being hit with the ball that they cannot see due to blindness. For that reason, I am not surprised that they are collapsing . I don't imagine that the blind would see a fast moving ball.

    • The ball is rolled to them and I believe it is an audible ball so they can hear it coming. The players also have various levels of vision impairment; they're not all completely blind. I doubt very much that they are battered and bruised. I hope the gentleman recovers soon.
