TEAMS

Cyril Rutherford "Snuffy" Browne, who died at Georgetown, British Guiana, on January 12, aged 73, played in four Test matches for West Indies v England, two in 1928 when touring with R. K. Nunes's team and two in the West Indies in 1929. A hard-hitting batsman and a bowler of medium pace, Snuffy Browne hit 103, including two 6's and seventeen 4's, in an hour from the Kent bowling at Canterbury in 1928, when his best bowling figures were eight Derbyshire wickets for 81 runs at Derby. In 1928-29 he did much to enable British Guiana to win the Inter-Colonial Cup. Against Barbados he hit 55 and 95 and took seven wickets, and in the match with Trinidad he made 83 and 24 not out and dismissed 11 batsmen. At one time a magistrate in British Guiana, he was the first West Indian to be elected an honorary life member of MCC.
