Profile

Wisden obituary
Lancelot (Lance) Richard Pierre, who died in his native Trinidad on April 14, 1989, aged 68, was one of a select group of fast bowlers to wear glasses. When he made his only tour, to England in John Goddard's 1950 side, Pierre, Hines Johnson and Prior Jones were expected to form no more than an adequate new-ball attack, but that this was correct did not matter because of the emergence of Ramadhin and Valentine as brilliant spinners. Pierre had a smooth action and high delivery, but he struggled against injury and could not produce the sharp edge of his earlier pace. On a dry pitch at Liverpool, however, he gave some evidence of it when returning a career-best eight for 51 as Lancashire were swept aside in three and a half hours. He did not play in any of the Tests, and as he virtually retired after the tour, his one Test appearance remained that against England in 1947-48 at Georgetown, where he bowled only handful of overs for no wicket on a rain-affected pitch. He first played for Trinidad in 1940-41, and his 35 first-class matches brought him 102 wickets at 24.72; no batsman he averaged 6.23 for his 131 runs. Pierre later acted as manager to various domestic and national teams playing at Port-of-Spain.
