Fray treasures memorable experience
Terryn Fray said that playing in the Brian Lara Celebrity T20 with some of the world’s elite cricketers was a “memorable experience [he] will for ever cherish”.
The Bermuda batsman featured in an International XI that came up against a Brian Lara XI in a T20 contest at last night’s official opening of the Brian Lara Cricket Academy.
Fray scored five from eight deliveries before a Dwayne Bravo off cutter brushed the inside of his pad and rolled onto the stumps.
“I was a little unlucky,” Fray said. “I just tried to play back on the ground but the wicket was turning and the ball went onto my pad and rolled onto the stumps.”
Fray got off the mark with the first ball he faced from West Indies all-rounder Bravo in the previous over.
“I started off all right but wasn’t able to go on,” he said. “I got off the mark with a full toss that I played into the covers but didn’t get on like I wanted to.”
Fray was invited to play in the exhibition match played at the new facility honoring the legacy of double world record holder Lara.
“It was a good experience to play with these guys and to be a part of history,” he added.
“It’ a good experience and I will cherish this moment.
“The atmosphere was very nice. It was a very good turnout and you can tell these people are passionate about their cricket.”
