    Anyone who is a student of the game will have heard of Roy Gilchrist.

    Have heard of him....but I'd be lying if I said I knew much about him. Then again, I'm only 18.

    I certainly am and I'd say there's a definate chance I'd have heard little about him if he were still alive.

    Wasn't he that West Indian nutcase that thought the beamer was a legitmate delivery, bounced people in charity games and skulled a guy with a stump during a game?

    Dude... Roy Gilchrist was an angry, angry man. Probably the most vicious quickie the World has ever known.

    I have, but I guess thats no great surpise considering the other thread.

    This is an interesting topic though. Im intregued by the level of cricketing historical knowledge possessed. Again I have high hopes.

    I mean I would expect everyone to know about Gilchrist as well as Leary Constantine and the 3 Ws etc (as we're talking about WI).

    He could've been a great bowler, but sadly he was too crazy. He played his last test when he was only about 25.

    I think he died a few years ago.

    I don't think he ever played against Aust. so that always limits my knowledge. I do remember him being sent home for bowling beamers?

    I wonder if his nickname was also 'Gilly'?
    You know it makes sense.

    yep i've heard of him alot from my grandfather who is of west indian heritage who says he was extremely fast, was sent home from a tour to india in the late 1950's , used to have a run from the boundary at sabina park & was extremely ignorant fast bowler & man who beat his wife later in life.

    Also mentions the interesting fact that if he could have gone to Australia during that famous 60-61 series he & Wes Hall could killed Australia. Good old gramps
