EX-WICB disciplinary committee member dies


lST JOHN'S



President of the West Indies Cricket Board Dr Julian Hunte yesterday sent condolences, on behalf of the Board, to the wife and family of Professor Aubrey Bishop who died last week.

Professor Bishop, a distinguished Guyanese jurist and former Chancellor was a former member of the WICB disciplinary committee.

"Professor Bishop served West Indies cricket with distinction. He was honourable, fair-minded and always considerate in the execution of his duties," Dr. Hunte said.

"We have lost another worthy and remarkable servant of the game who was a legal giant in his native Guyana and the region.

"Not only did Professor Bishop serve the game from beyond the boundary but he played, being good enough to have represented British Guiana in the early 1950s as a slow left arm bowler."

Professor Bishop, who was 81, will be laid to rest on Saturday.
