dbo:abstract
  • Francis Ignatius (Frank) de Caires (12 May 1909 - 2 February 1959) was a British Guianian cricketer who played three Test matches for West Indies in the 1930s. de Caires was born in British Guiana and developed into a sound right-handed batsman who made his first-class debut for British Guiana against Trinidad at Port of Spain in the 1928/29 Inter-Colonial Tournament, a match Trinidad won comfortably despite de Caires top-scoring in the visitor’s first innings. When Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) toured the Caribbean the following season, de Caires was selected for three of the four Test matches, including the inaugural one by the West Indies on home soil. Played at Bridgetown, Barbados in January 1930, de Caires performed admirably by scoring 80 runs in the first innings and 70 more in the second to earn his side a creditable draw. Later that year he was selected for the first tour of Australia by a West Indian representative side but failed to make any of the five Test matches. No obituary appeared in Wisden for Frank de Caires after his death. (en)
