Profile

Glendon Lionel Gibbs, died at Georgetown, Guyana on February 21, aged 53. A left-handed opening bat with a sound defence and a slow left-arm bowler, he played for British Guiana throughout the 1950s, and is chiefly remembered for an innings of 216 against Barbados at Georgetown in 1952 when he and L. Wight, who scored 262, put on 390 for the first wicket; still a record for first-class cricket in the West Indies. In 1955 he played in the first Test against the Australians. He was, until his death, Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board of Control and represented it on the West Indies Board of Control.
