 Cricket West Indies President Dave Cameron said he was honoured to share the same stage with a number of the sport’s luminaries while being inducted into the Cricket Council USA’s Cricket Hall of Fame on Saturday.

During the ceremony held at the Hilton JFK Hotel in New York, Cameron and CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams were inducted along with a long list of past players and administrators.

Cameron said it was also a quite nostalgic occasion.

“It was quite an honour to share the same stage with Jimmy Adams, someone who was actually my childhood hero, someone I grew up with playing,” Cameron told SportsMax.TV on Tuesday after he was congratulated by the CWI on the accolade.

“What was also interesting and was quite nostalgic, Len Chambers, former manager and selector of youth cricket while I was trying to make the youth team was also honoured on the night.

“And Richard Staple (STETHS) who beat Kingston College in the final of the Spalding Cup, some years ago. So, it was quite an interesting night having men who had taken different paths in cricket and who were recognized for their different roles.”

Cameron received his blazer and ring along with New York Councilman Alan Maisel and John Mitchell from Pioneer Cricket Club in New York.

Also inducted were Shah Zafar, (who is actively involved in the administration of cricket in Canada, and former president of the New York Cricket Umpires Association Fitzroy Hayles.
