Clifford Everard Goodman, the greatest bowler the West Indies ever produced, and a member of a famous cricket brotherhood, died in Barbados on February 15, at the early age of 40. He was educated at the Lodge School, Barbados, and subsequently joined the Pickwick CC, which he helped to make the strongest club in the island. In the 14 important matches - inter-colonial and against teams from England - in which he appeared his fast bowling accounted for as many as 122 wickets. He used his head well, varied pace and pitch with good judgment, had a deadly yorker at his command, and broke in from the off in disconcerting fashion. His height was 6ft. 4ins.
