Wisden obituary
Ivan Barrow, who died in Kingston, Jamaica, on April 2, aged 68, has a place in cricket history as the first West Indian to score a hundred in a Test in England. This was at Old Trafford in 1933, and when he achieved the feat George Headley was on 99 - together they added 200 for the second wicket, Barrow making 105. A year earlier the two had put on 248 against Lord Tennyson's side at Kingston for the third wicket, still a record for Jamaica; Barrow's share was 169 and he made 58 not out in the second innings. He was, at that time, the West Indian's first string wicket-keeper, a quiet and thoroughly competent performer, but in 1934 he lost his place to C. M. Christiani, who died in 1938. Barrow was recalled in 1939 for the tour to England, but after a five-year gap he was short of first-class practice. After the first Test he had to give way to his second string, J. E. D. Sealy. In all between 1930 and 1939 he played in eleven Tests.
