Late Barbados and West Indies batting star Seymour Nurse will receive an official funeral at Kensington Oval on Friday.
Nurse, who passed away at the age of 85 last week, played for the West Indies between 1960 and 1969. He played 29 Tests scoring 2,523 runs at an average of 47.60 with six centuries and 10 half-centuries and was part of a strong West Indies middle order in the 1960s.
Nurse’s contributions continued long after he left the pitch as he went on to serve as a mentor and coach to many great West Indies players and was also an administrator and selector.
His body will be in repose at Empire Club, Pavilion Road, St Michael tomorrow from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and at Cricket Legends of Barbados, Fontabelle, St Michael, on Thursday, May 16, at the same time.
