Windies mourn before T20 World Cup, this veteran batsman is no more

New Delhi: The West Indies team has reached Australia to play the T20 World Cup 2022. But, before the Caribbean team starts its mission there, a piece of bad news caused a wave of mourning in the entire West Indies. Actually, a former batsman of the team Bruce Pairaudeau has died. He was 91 years old. This information has been given by Cricket West Indies.

Born in 1931, Bruce played a total of 13 Tests for the West Indies between 1953 and 1957 in his career. He made his international debut against India in a Test match in Port of Spain. Against India, he scored a century in his first innings. Bruce was from the West Indies. But when he toured New Zealand with his team in 1956, he fell in love with that country. After this tour, he started living in New Zealand. He also played cricket for northern districts in New Zealand's domestic tournament Plunkett Shield in 1962–63. Bruce retired from domestic cricket in 1966-67.

Bruce's international career spanned just 13 Tests, scoring 454 runs at an average of 21.61. He touched the double-digit mark only six times in the next 20 Test innings after scoring a century against India in his debut Test. Bruce's latest picture was revealed in 2015 when he went from Hamilton to Napier with his friends to watch the West Indies cricket team practice.
