HEADLINE: Former Windies batsman Peter Lashley dies 2023-09-06 15:00:55 

FORMER WEST Indies batsman Peter Lashley died in Barbados on Monday, following a long illness.

The 86-year-old Barbadian played four Tests for West Indies from 1960 to 1966, scoring 159 runs at an average of 22.

Most significantly, he made his debut in the historic Tied Test against Australia at Brisbane, in a squad led by the peerless Sir Frank Worrell, and including the likes of Sir Garry Sobers – Barbados’ most iconic national hero.

A left-hander, Lashley played two Tests on that tour but did not feature again until five years later when he turned out in another two Tests on the 1966 tour of England.

The old Spartan guy has gone home to rest. He was a regional bully who just couldn’t take it to another level. Having said that, there was too much competition for two few places in his time, so he never had an extended stay. Lashley of the 60-70s would walk in and replace any current Windies Test player.

May he rest in peace.

To the best I remember I think he still is. I will check with my Bajan buddy. I have great memories of the double century Lashley made at Bourda and Sobers 165.

Peter only played 2 matches in test cricket, his first in Aussie land was a pretty good knock. Many Bajans at one time believed he was better than Nurse and the guys at Waterford called him the left-handed "Frankie". he was a fluent and graceful player but after 1962 he became a dour unattractive batsman.
RIP Peter.

I really don't know.
Prof is alive.
I keep writing about a segment of the population, that is not part of our cricket structure, which is so sad.
There is room in Barbados for everyone.

Only novices believe that nonsense, they all had to be the Parkettes.
Peter was a very good batsman, he had a group that would bowl to him, every practice evening, after his net session.
