Wisden Obituary
Mudie, George Horatio, originally recorded in Wisden as Moodie, died in St Catherine, Jamaica on June 8, 2002, aged 86. He had been West Indies' oldest surviving Test cricketer, a precedence which passed to Esmond Kentish. His one Test, against England at Kingston in March 1935, clinched West Indies' first series win. Mudie, a tall left-handed batsman and left-arm spinner, had come into the side on the strength of a career-best 94 and 60 not out for Jamaica against MCC. Batting No. 6 in the Test, he scored only five while George Headley at the other end hammered on towards an unbeaten 270. But the first of his three wickets broke the sixth-wicket stand of 157 between Les Ames and Jack Iddon as England struggled to avoid the follow-on after their captain, Bob Wyatt, retired hurt early on with a fractured jaw. Having made his debut against Lord Tennyson's side in 1931-32, Mudie played 17 times for Jamaica until 1951-52, by which time he was a much respected coach whose charges included the young Alf Valentine. In 1948 he was called up as a replacement for John Goddard's side in India, only to be told on reaching London that he was no longer needed. In 19 first-class games he scored 578 runs at 22.23 and took 42 wickets at 35.45, with best figures of five for 32 in only nine overs against the Oxford and Cambridge side that visited Jamaica in August 1938.
