Right hand bat

Nyron Asgarali was an opening bat with a solid defence who established himself for Trinidad by scoring 103, 128 and 83 in successive matches against British Guiana in 1951-52. Curiously his first-class career spanned 20 years but he played only 50 games, and did not play more than three first-class games in any season save the 1957 tour of England, when he made 21 appearances. By this stage he was 37 years old, and although he struggled in his two Tests, he totalled 1011 runs on the tour at an average of 29.73. He had previously played cricket for Enfield in the Lancashire leagues, and this local knowledge was probably a factor in his selection.
In later years he served on the South Management committee of the Trinidad Cricket Council. He managed the 1983 Trinidad and Tobago Shell Shield teams and served as liaison officer to the visiting Australia, New Zealand and England teams 1984-86.
