ST. JOHN'S, Antigua -- The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has paid tribute to former Dominica, Windward Islands, Combined Islands and West Indies fast bowler Grayson Shillingford, who died on Wednesday. He was 65 years old.
Speaking early Thursday, Dr Julian Hunte, President of the WICB, hailed Shillingford as a pioneer, an outstanding servant of the game, and true ambassador for his country and the region. Dr Hunte added that he was a hero to many people in his native Dominica and throughout the Windwards. He was the first Dominican to play Test cricket.
