Former England fast bowler Devon Malcolm (left, right arm outstretched) gives fast bowling advice to three young cricketers (centre) at the Treasure Beach Sports Park & Academy recently. At right is former West Indies fast bowler Daren Powell who is president of the St Elizabeth Cricket Association and parish councillor (PNP) for the Malvern Division. Malcolm, who was born and grew up in Leeds, St Elizabeth and was a student of St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) when he migrated to England at age 16, was in Jamaica as part of the House of Lords and Commons Cricket Club.
The club, which comprised several British members of parliament as well as former England fast bowlers John Lever and Phil deFreitas, played a number of festival cricket matches in Jamaica -- most notably against Jamaican parliamentarians at Sabina Park and against the Treasure Beach Pirates in Treasure Beach.
