The one thing is that if he wasn’t that relaxed, he would have gone on to higher heights. I have always been telling him that he should have knocked on the West Indies door, but I think he was just in a comfort zone doing the job for Jamaica. He did a tremendous job,” Walsh told reporters.”I am just happy that he got some recognition for that tonight because it is not easy to win five back-to-back titles and he showed he is a deserving leader,” Walsh continued.The former world Test wickets record holder was speaking at Wednesday evening’s awards function held at the Terra Nova All-SuiteHotel in New Kingston where the respective winners, were announced.For his part, Lambert, who is still active in cricket locally, said it felt good to be recognised.”This award means everything to me. The Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education Fund fund has recognised my contributions over the years and it’s nice to know that you have done well and people recognise you,” he reasoned.”I am still in the sport. I am jetting off to Australia shortly,” said Lambert, who revealed that he has been delayed by a problem with his visa.
