The Members and Executive of WIPA have extended their condolences to the bereaved relatives of the late Grayson Shillingford, former West Indies Test player, who recently passed after prolonged illness.

The Dominican-born fast bowler who comes from an illustrious cricketing and business family in that country was, in the view of the President and Chief Executive Officer of WIPA, Mr. Dinanath Ramnarine, a model cricketer who displayed all those fine qualities both on and off the field that added luster to the game.

According to Ramnarine, he could never be faulted for lack of effort in whatever role he played in cricket.

WIPA sincerely hopes that the fine legacy Shillingford has left, albeit in a relatively short Test career, will be emulated by all involved in West Indies cricket.
