NALIS’ Heritage Library Division presents the exhibitions Cricket Through the Eyes of Calypso - the 1920s to the Present and Cricket Lovely Cricket at the National library, March 23 to April 28, 2007.

The exhibition Cricket through the Eyes of Calypso - the 1920s to the Present highlights the relationship shared between the history of West Indian cricket and calypsoes. It features calypsoes that chronicle the game and some of its players. Lord Kitchener’s Cricket Champion (1967), Lord Beginner’s Cricket Lovely Cricket and David Rudder’s Rally Round the West Indies are just some of the calypso lyrics featured in this exhibition.

Cricket Lovely Cricket will feature photographs and biographies of some of the great West Indian cricketers of all time as well as the current World Cup squad. It also features some World Cup cricket statistics.

Items from The Constantine Collection and The Louise Horne Collection held by the Heritage Library Division, as well as press articles, have been included in these exhibitions.
