Cricket West Indies (CWI) today paid tribute to Irvin Warrican, the former St Vincent & Grenadines and Windward Islands allrounder, coach and team manager. He passed away in his homeland St Vincent early on Sunday.

Warrican played six first-class matches as an off-spinner and middle-order batter for Windward Islands between 1991 and 1995. Following his retirement, he was a highly-respected coach and team manager. During the ongoing West Indies Rising Stars Under 19 Championship, the teams also held a moment of silence in his honour.

Dr Kishore Shallow, Vice President of CWI paid a special tribute. He said:

“In addition to being a former first-class cricketer, Irvin Warrican was a cricket coach, mentor, and father figure to several young players. He had this amazing ability to simplify cricket, whether when coaching cricketers or facilitating CWI cricket coaching programs. His sterling service to cricket, particularly to the Windward Islands, should be celebrated. I join the cricket community to express condolences to his wife, Yvonne, and all his loved ones.”
