Cricketers return to heroes’ welcome… and a hug

It started with a win and it finished with a group hug in front of watching wellwishers. Long after all the other national teams reached their homes, St Helena’s cricketers have returned to the island after competing in their first-ever overseas tournament.

It saw them beat four African nations and end up on the front page of a UK national newspaper. They came ashore in their green and yellow team strip and ended the month-long trip with a team hug outside the customs building.
