One of the all-time great cricketers was in North Devon on Friday.Sir Garfield, or Garry, Sobers visited Shebbear College to open a new cricket pavilion. Sobers, who is widely considered as one of the best all-rounders to have played, cut the ribbon to open the building before taking time to talk with students and parents about his career. Shebbear headmaster Simon Weale said: We are thrilled that Sir Garry took time out of his busy schedule to visit us, not least because our netball and cricket teams are touring Barbados next year. As a school we promote the benefits of team sports, so to have such a sporting icon coming here can only serve to inspire our pupils. Sobers played 93 tests for the West Indies, averaging nearly 58 runs per innings.
