Former West Indies spinner Raphick Jumadeen dies at 75

He played 12 Tests between 1972 and 1979, taking 29 wickets

Former West Indies spinner Raphick Jumadeen has died at the age of 75.
A left-arm spinner, Jumadeen played 12 Tests for West Indies between 1972 and 1979, taking 29 wickets. As Clive Lloyd's all-pace attack came to the fore, Jumadeen's opportunities were limited, and he took part in just one full series, against India in 1975-76.
The defection of players to Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket gave Jumadeen a chance, and in two Tests against Australia in 1977-78, he took 11 wickets, but after only three wickets against India the following season (and the return of the Packer players) he was dropped for the last time.
Renowned for his accuracy, Jumadeen made a name for himself at Trinidad & Tobago, playing 99 first-class matches between 1967 and 1981, and taking 347 wickets including 16 five-wicket hauls. He also played 17 List-A matches, picking up 21 wickets.
After his playing career, Jumadeen went into coaching, spending some time at W Connection Wanderers. In July 2008, he was named in the national selection panel headed by Clyde Butts, the former West Indies offspinner.
The West Indian team wore black armbands in remembrance of Jumadeen during the first ODI against India in Barbados on July 27.
