Cricket teams are known for their passionate ‘super fans’ who always turn up to the stadium to show dedication and loyalty to the side. Guyana-born Keith van Anderson was one such person, who was a prominent face at the Lord’s Cricket Ground for over 4 decades.
His undying love for the game and the West Indies side meant that he never missed a single Test match at Lord’s since 1973. A permanent presence at the venue, ‘Pipe Man’ Keith recently passed away leading to an influx of messages on Twitter mourning his loss.
Pakistan’s legendary right-arm pacer Waqar Younis was one of the many cricketers who tweeted his grievances. Remembering his charismatic character, Waqar expressed his sadness that he would miss the Windies’ super fan.
