CRICKET: Former WI captain says Austin was a wonderful human being

Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd has remembered Richard Austin as a talented and fantastic cricketer and wonderful team man.

Austin died in hospital last weekend at the age of 60, after a brief illness.
Lloyd, the legendary captain of the 1970s and 80s, captained Austin during his time in the West Indies team.

He says Austin was a wonderful team player and a good human being.

Austin, who was a right-handed batsman and off-spinner, played two Tests and a single One Day International for the West Indies.

He was also a member of the West Indies team that played in World Series Cricket and one of the rebel players who toured South Africa in the early 1980s.

He played 38 first-class matches making four centuries for Jamaica.
