Subject: Andy Ganteaume, West Indies batsman who averaged 112 in Tests, dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/19/16 at 6:26 am

Former West Indies batsman Andy Ganteaume - the only Test cricketer with a better average than Sir Donald Bradman - has died at the age of 95.

Ganteaume scored 112 in his one and only Test, against England in 1948.

He also played football for Trinidad, and was the second-oldest former Test cricketer - behind South African Lindsay Tuckett, 97 - when he died.

West Indies Cricket Board chairman Dave Cameron described him as "one of the patriots of our great game".
