Dominica cricket fraternity mourns death of former national batsman

Dominica’s cricketing fraternity has been thrown into a state of shock and mourning following the sudden death of Kelvin Toussaint, a former national opening batsman. Toussaint, 30, died on Friday evening following a vehicular accident close to the eastern community of Castle Bruce. The left-handed batsman, who opened the batting for Dominica for several years in the Windward Islands senior tournament, was a passenger aboard a pick up truck which plunged into a precipice.

Toussaint only returned to competitive cricket two years ago after self imposed exile. Just before his untimely death he was scheduled to represent his club in a Twenty20 encounter this Sunday. He had also represented Dominica at the regional youth level and at the Sir Garry Sobers Secondary Schools International cricket tournament in Barbados.
