April 8, 1999
Sir Clyde Walcott, the former chair of the International Cricket Council (ICC), is among eight former West Indian test players who will be inducted into the Guyana Hall of Fame on April 19.
The Barbadian-born Walcott worked in Guyana for several years and helped develop the game in the rural areas through coaching. He also represented Guyana in the regional tournament.
The other inductees are current West Indies manager Clive Lloyd, Rohan Kanhai, Basil Butcher, Joe Solomon, Lance Gibbs, Roy Fredericks and deceased cricket administrator Kenny Wishart.
A careful left-handed opener who played in one test against England in the 1934-35 series, Wishart went on to become Guyana's representative on the West Indies Cricket Board from 1949-1971.
