Wisden obituary
Leslie George Hylton died in Jamaica on May 17, aged 50. He played in six Test Matches for West Indies. A fast bowler for Jamaica, he helped in the winning of the rubber against R. E. S. Wyatt's team in the West Indies in 1934-35 when, in four Tests, he dismissed 13 batsmen at an average cost of 19.30. In 1939, he visited England under the captaincy of R. S. Grant, being chosen for two of the Test matches, but met with moderate success.
