Cricket icon Sir Everton Weekes has died at age of 95.
He was the oldest living West Indies cricketer – loved and revered by the cricketing fraternity.
As a member of the Three Ws – alongside Sir Frank Worrell and Sir Clyde Walcott – he paved the way for the development of West Indies cricket.
During his career, he made 4,455 runs in 48 Tests, at a remarkable average of 58.61 runs per innings, including 15 centuries. He made his Test debut against England at Kensington Oval in 1948 and played his last Test match against Pakistan at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad in 1958. (BT/Cricket West Indies)
