Share post:

ST JOHN’S – The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) regret the passing of Trinidadian and West Indian off-spinner Rangy Nanan.

Nanan was a quality off-spinner who served Trinidad and Tobago for almost two decades with distinction, leading them in the Shell Shield in the 1980s. He played in 94 first class matches where he racked up 366 wickets and scored 2 607 runs.

He played one Test for the West Indies in the 1980-81 year versus Pakistan where he took four wickets and scored 16 runs. His bowling figures for the match were 36-7-91-4. West Indies won that match by 156 runs.

After making his first class debut in 1973, he served the TT team as captain from 1984 – 1991.

Following his retirement, he served as a police officer, a liaison officer for the West Indies team and was a volunteer for the Cricket World Cup 2007 in the Caribbean.

The WICB offers condolences to his family and close friends. (PR)
