Player collapses and dies

Former Queen’s Park Cricket Club wicketkeeper batsman Peter Clerk died of an apparent massive heart attack during an over-50, 35-overs fete match against an English touring team at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, yesterday. The right-handed batsman would have turned 50 this year.

According to his teammate Jeffrey Guillen, Clerk, who played with the club during his younger days, was batting and showed no signs of any problems before he suddenly collapsed. Guillen also noted that Clerk turns out every year to take part in the Club’s Cricket Festival.
