Sir Everton, who had been ailing for the last few months, passed away at his Christ Church home around mid-day.

Barbados Cricket Association president Conde Andrew Riley, told the Nation News, he was deeply saddened.

“Sir Everton was one of our greats. He has made a massive contribution to Barbados and West Indies cricket. This is a sad time for cricket. We have lost a legend,” Riley said.

Sir Everton, who turned 95 in February, is the only man in history to score five successive Test hundreds, achieving the feat in 1948.

His Test average of 58.61 is one of the highest in all cricket. In 48 matches, he scored 15 hundreds. (MK)
