The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) is saddened by the passing of former Guyana and West Indies off-spinner, Clyde Butts and sends its regards during this time to the family, friends and entire cricket fraternity.

Butts, who was 66 years old, died on Friday afternoon following a vehicular accident on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD), with details surrounding the unfortunate incident still hazy at the time.

Nicknamed ‘Mr. 5-Fer’, the spin stalwart played 87 First-Class games for Guyana with seven Test appearances for the West Indies between 1985-1988. The spinner also won three First-Class titles for his country during his active days, finishing with 380 scalps.

Butts was also Chairman of the West Indies Senior Selection for a few years before focusing more recently on commentary where he was a regular voice during the Regional season.

The GCB sends its regards to the family of the late Mr. Butts, as the cricket fraternity mourns one of its fallen comrades.
