The funeral for Sir Clyde Walcott, the former West Indies batsman, will be held at Cave Hill in Barbados on Saturday.

Walcott died on August 26 aged 80 after suffering a short illness. He was one of the three Ws - Everton Weekes and Sir Frank Worrell were the others - and will be buried close to Worrell's grave in a site which overlooks the cricket ground named in their honour.

"It is a fitting resting place for Clyde at a ground named in his honour," his widow, Lady Muriel Walcott, said.

In 44 Tests Walcott struck 15 hundreds, and made 3798 runs at an average of 56.68. Walcott managed several West Indian teams and succeeded Sir Colin Cowdrey as chairman of ICC. He was knighted in 1994.
