Four legendary former captains of the West Indies cricket team put out a video thanking India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for procuring Covid vaccines for their nation.

A video put out on the Indian Ministry of External Affairs’ socials shows legends Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Richie Richardson, Jimmy Adams and Ramnaresh Sarwan thanking India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for providing Antigua and Barbuda, Guyana and other CARICOM countries with the Astrazeneca vaccine.

“We thank all the people of India for such a kind gesture,” Sir Vivian Richards says in the video.

India had been supplying multiple Caribbean nations with free Covid vaccines, and has also “gifted” or sold millions of doses to its neighbouring countries, including Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
