What happened on this day?

30 Oct 1962

The first man to take 500 Test wickets and perhaps the last of the Caribbean's great pacemen, Courtney Walsh was born on this day in 1962. Walsh started playing with greats like Malcolm Marshall and Curtly Ambrose and finished alongside players who had grown up idolising him. He finished with 519 Test wickets from 132 Tests and was renowned for being one of the most likeable men in world cricket.

Celebrating their birthday today:
Courtney Walsh (52) | Mike Veletta (51) | Dimitri Mascarenhas (36) | Junaid Siddique (27) | Qasim Sheikh (29) |
