Sir Donald Bradman commissioned former Test cricketer and professional jeweller Ernie McCormick to create a trophy to be presented to the winner of the West Indies - Australia Test match series in cricket. It was named after the former West Indies captain Sir Frank Worrell.
The Frank Worrell Trophy is a cricket trophy played for between the West Indies and Australia. It was instituted in 1961 by the Australian cricket board (Sir Donald Bradman) in commemoration of the tied test match between Australia and the West Indies at Brisbane during the series of the 1960-1961 season and named after Sir Frank Worrell who led the West Indies in that match.
