The West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) has extended its condolences to the family of Arthur Barrett, the former Jamaica and West Indies cricketer who died on Monday.
WIPA, in a release, said Barrett, the first regional cricketer to claim 10 wickets and score a century in the same match, showed astute leadership skills at his local club Melbourne.
WIPA’s president, Wavell Hinds, said Barrett was “a great contributor to Melbourne Cricket Club and Jamaica and West Indies cricket. His calm, gentle personality is a memory that will continue to live in the hearts of all those he interacted with. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”
