Lance Murray, a former Trinidad & Tobago player and cricket administrator, died on Sunday at the age of 91. Murray, the father of the former West Indies wicketkeeper Deryck Murray, was a former director of the WICB.
"Lance and I served as directors on the WICB, and I always found him an excellent colleague," Julian Hunte, the WICB president, said. "He was disciplined, articulate and was a true Caribbean man. Although he represented T&T, his focus was always on what was necessary, and he was an able representative of the WICB at ICC board meetings in the past."
Murray, a legspinner, played three first-class matches for T&T between 1956 and 1960. He was one of the 50 people honoured by the T&T Cricket Board last month during the country's 50th independence anniversary celebrations. He was inducted into the T&T Sports Hall of Fame in 1995 for his role as a sports administrator.
