    Please help identify an old West Indian player ?

    I see the guy regularly with the squad when they are on tour. He has also been on the West Indies tour to Dubai which finished yesterday. He's short, wears a beard, and shades. I thought it was David Williams but he is too old to be David Williams.

    Last year the West Indies were here in South Africa, and i saw him standing next to Eldine Baptiste. I immediately went to Eldine, but i saw people also asking for this older guy's signature. I was surprised, i couldn't identity him. Never bothered asking his name. I should've, now that i think about it. Was too interested in talking to Eldine. As i was always following Eldine playing, growing up.


    Thanks

    Can't find any. I'll try some more. Bit difficult to find a picture if you don't have a name.

    No. He looks like a really old guy. I'll check the highlights and try and get a screen capture of him.

    I think your talking about kieth van anderson, he's a mcc member, i see him at lords all the time...watches every county game and hasnt missed a lords test since the 70s apparently. Gets about to watch west indies too. Iv never spoke to him but meant to be a top bloke. Not actually an ex player i dont think
