Lloyd Top All-time Guyana Cricketer
Wednesday 21, April-2004
Lloyd, credited with building the West Indies team of the mid-1970s into an overwhelmingly dominant force in world cricket, gained the most votes.
He was adjudged Guyana’s greatest player from an original list of 15 players which also included Basil Butcher, Stephen Camacho, Roy Fredericks, Alvin Kallicharan, Roger Harper, Robert Christiani, Faoud Bacchus, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Colin Croft and Joe Solomon.
The five players will advance to join five other players from Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and the Combined Islands en route to the final selection of the five greatest West Indies players.
The Scotiabank West Indian Jubilee is a series of promotional events in celebration of 75 years of West Indies cricket.
Individual performance awards went to Colin Croft and Kanhai. Croft’s eight for 29 against India in Barbados in the 1981-82 series was adjudged the best bowling performance by a Guyanese in Tests.
Kanhai took the batting crown for his 256 against India at Calcutta in the 1958-59 series.
Three Shell special achievement awards went to commentator Joseph ‘Reds’ Perreira, veteran scorer Ron Legall and Guysuco, which has upgraded several playing fields in the country. (CMC)
