All help appreciated.

Thanks

in1980.he can still sometimes be seen giving comments on Sky TV.

Who was the former England test cricketer who died 3-4 years ago at a
relatively early age (around 35)? I thought it was Roland Butcher.

Probably Wilf Slack...who used to play for the Windwards (from St.Vincent)

You are probably thinking of Wilf Slack, but he died as long ago as
1989.

BTW wasn't Sir Pelham Warner the first "West Indian" to play for
England?

Wilf Slack. He collapsed and died playing cricket (in the Gambia I
think ?) 10 years or so ago. I can't think of any since then (though
some have resembled dead people).

Apparently he had been prone to blackouts in the past, and he just
keeled over at the wicket and died.

I am on holiday this week, so anyone who wishes to have a pop
at me over Warne & Waugh will have to hold fire, and Steven
"Da Honest Man" will have to find someone else to wind up,
and the pomposity quotient will be halved on the newsgroup.

Bet you're all heartbroken......

He was, but since he played his last Test in 1909, he never had the
opportunity to play against West Indies as the thread subject
prescribes.

Cheers,
