Profile

Ivor Mendonca was a reliable wicketkeeper-batsman who had the misfortune to be at his peak at a time when there was no vacancy in the West Indies squad. His two Test appearances came when Jackie Hendriks was injured, in the second and fourth Tests against India in 1961-62. In his debut, at Kingston, he scored 78 and took four catches and a stumping; in his other Test he again made five dismissals. But despite this, Deryck Murray was preferred for the 1963 England tour and Mendonca was not chosen again. His second Test outing was also his final first-class appearance.
