Jamaica national cricket team. Redirected from Jamaican cricket team). The Jamaican national cricket team is the representative first-class cricket team of Jamaica. The team's history lasts back. The team's history lasts back to 1895, when they played three matches against a touring side from England led by Slade Lucas, but because of the distance to the other cricketing countries, Jamaica did not play regular first-class cricket until 1964.

The Story of the Jamaican People. Covering a period from the tumultuous 1970s, during which the die was cast for modern Jamaican society, through to the early 1990s, this book captures the essence of Jamaica at the time. This well-illustrated book focuses on the history of the Africans brought to Jamaica by European colonisers. Taking an afrocentric view lends this book a very specific lens through which to view the history of Jamaica.

In December 1830, the Jamaican Assembly passed a General Privilege Bill granting civil rights to free coloureds and blacks, and a year later, the first two coloured men, Price Watkis and John Manderson, were elected to the Assembly. However, contrary to Custos Barrett's expectations, neither man sided with the white legislators.

The Jamaican classroom features students who entered the school system with SJE, JC or a mixture of both.

George Sargeant Cox (1 November 1877 – 25 October 1945) was a Jamaican cricketer who captained the Jamaican national side in his only first-class appearance. He later served as an umpire in several first-class matches featuring Jamaica. Cox had earlier appeared for Jamaican sides against two visiting English teams – one during the 1901–02 season, led by Richard Bennett, and another during the 1904–05 season, led by Viscount Brackley (later the 4th Earl of Ellesmere).

How do Jamaicans do it? It’s not because of genetics, as some claim

How do Jamaicans do it? It’s not because of genetics, as some claim. A vast majority of Jamaicans’ ancestors are from West Africa, which has relatively few outstanding sprinters. Nor can genetics explain why Jamaicans outperform other blacks in the Americas, especially in Brazil, which has 36 times as many of them. The result was what the historical demographer James Riley calls the Jamaican paradox: one of the rare instances of a poor country with the life expectancy of an advanced society, a health transition that began in the 1920s and improved at one of the fastest paces on record, from 36 years at birth in 1920 to 70 by 1977.

This 700-page study of Jamaican cricket traces the development of the game from its appearance in the post-emancipation period when it was the exclusive pastime of the white, planter/merchant class up to the 21st century when the globalized economy makes cricket the full time pursuit of the professional. The book will appeal to a far wider readership than the immediate cricket fraternity for the fact that it is written within the wider framework of the social history of Jamaica and explores the role of the game in the shaping of Jamaican society. Readers are provided with a profile of Jamaica s first cricketers who emerged from the early cricket clubs established in the nineteenth century and represented Jamaica in the island s first cricket matches beginning in 1895. These include W.G. Farquharson, the first recognised Jamaican batsman, and C.R.W. Chandler, who established Jamaica s tradition in pace bowling. The book explores the context in which Jamaica s first black cricketers emerged and the role of Calabar Elementary School and Lucas Cricket Club in this landmark development, which led to the selection of Jamaica s first multi-racial team in 1902. Multi-racial cricket was the platform on which J.K. Holt Snr., Karl Nunes, O.C. Tommy Scott and Charlie Morales made their appearance and collectively carried Jamaican cricket to a new stage. The publication is dedicated to the memory of George Headley, Jamaica s greatest cricketer and the first Jamaican to be acclaimed the best in the world in any field of endeavour. In 2009, Jamaica will be celebrating the anniversary of his birth, and in recognition of this landmark, the book devotes considerable space to his career. There are invaluable insights into his early life and his exploits during the decade in which he carried Jamaican and West Indian cricket like Atlas of Greek mythology. It also documents his travails in his twilight years and lauds the recognition he received before his death which he so richly deserved. Students of the game will be able to reminisce about Jamaican cricket during the years when Headley, F.R. Martin, O.J. Cunningham, O.C. Stephenson and Leslie Hylton, among others, carried Jamaican cricket to its greatest heights and made the period between the wars the golden age . The present generation of cricket lovers will be more familiar with the names of the post-war generation of players including J.K. Holt Jnr., Alan Rae, Alfred Valentine, Collie Smith, Ken Rickards and Neville Bonitto, who carried the game to the eve of Jamaica s independence. By then, popular music, track and field athletics and football had begun to challenge cricket s dominance of the cultural stage. Unfortunately, during this period the game also suffered from the tragic death of Collie Smith and the banning of Roy Gilchrist. The post-independence renewal led by Easton McMorris, Maurice Foster, Jackie Hendricks, Renford Pinnock and Lawrence Rowe revived spectator interest, and the emergence of Michael Holding, Jeffrey Dujon and Courtney Walsh restored the primacy of Jamaica s contribution to West Indies cricket. The study finally explores the challenges to the game posed by globalization, which places the professional cricketer in the ranks of modern entrepreneurs whose primary objective is to get the best return from their investment of time and talent and to identify the point in the globalized market which will reward them best. The nationalist agenda traditionally associated with cricket no longer exists in the same way. Those who engage in endless discussions about the game will be able to refer to the comprehensive data base of individual career records of Jamaican players as well as the statistical data which is available.
