Terrence Davis, a Vincentian Special Olympian, was Digicel’s guest at the toss for the First Digicel Test between the West Indies and Bangladesh at Arnos Vale. Davis joined West Indian Floyd Reifer and Bangladeshi Mashrafe Mortaza, both appearing as captains for the first time, to officially commence the game.
“It’s something you might not get an opportunity to do again. It was unique and I enjoyed it tremendously,” said Davis who suffers from cerebral palsy and who is a player/coach of the St Vincent floor hockey team.
“It is nice to get closer to the cricketers themselves and it gives me something to identify with,” added Davis, who has competed in five Special Olympics since the early 90s.
The inspirational 31 year old Davis, a resident of Belmont, St Vincent, also finds time to serve as an assistant teacher at the School for Children with Special Needs. He is also the coach of the St Vincent bocce team, a position he took up after his retirement as a national player.
