Profile

Wisden obituary
Ken Wishart, who died suddenly in Georgetown, Guyana, late in October at the age of 64, was for many years one of the leading administrators in the West Indies. He had been a member of the West Indies Board, as Guyana's representative, from 1949 until his retirement in early 1972. He served for a brief period in the early 1960s as secretary of the Board. At the time of his death he was president of the Guyana CA and virtually in charge of the prestigious Georgetown CC and its Test ground, Bourda. Born in London on November 28, 1908, he was the second son of a doctor who became Georgetown's first Medical Officer of Health. On the field, Kenny Wishart was an opening batsman good enough to play in a Test for the West Indies (in Georgetown in 1934) and to score 52 run out in a first innings total of 184 against R. E. S. Wyatt's England team. That he did not play again was the result of a policy at the time to choose a nucleus of six players for the Test team and then complete the eleven with others from the `home' territory. It was off the field, however, that Wishart made his mark. He became a leading personality of Guyanese commerce, rising from junior clerk to Executive Director of the large Booker's concern before his retirement. In cricket his administrative abilities were equally evident. His presence and influence in West Indies cricket as a whole, and in Guyanese cricket in particular, will be keenly missed.
