Barbados: A native of Barbados, former West Indies fast bowler Ezra Moseley died after being hit by a car on Saturday morning.

The 63-year-old Moseley, who played two Tests and one one-day international, was hit by a car at a road junction on the ABC Highway while out riding his bicycle.

Moseley began his first-class debut in England for Glamorgan before he played for Barbados.

His international chances were limited by the remarkable depth of fast bowlers in West Indian cricket. He found himself behind the players such as Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Joel Garner, and Colin Croft.

He signed up for the controversial 1982 West Indies rebel tour to South Africa, earning a life ban from West Indies cricket.

Moseley proceeded to play in South Africa for Eastern Province and remained at Glamorgan until 1986, when he became a professional in the Lancashire Leagues.

After the bans were lifted, he became the only member of that rebel tour to appear in the West Indies team when he was selected to play two Tests in the home series against England in 1990.

He took six wickets but most notably broke Graham Gooch’s hand in the drawn third Test, which kept the England captain out of the series’s remainder.

Moseley later became a coach at The St Michael School in Bridgetown, where he played an essential role in developing current West Indies’ Test captain Jason Holder.

“It has come as a shock to listen of the passing of Ezra Moseley, earlier today, with the tragic news coming out of Barbados,” Cricket West Indies director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, said in a statement. “The entire CWI family is deeply saddened. Ezra was one of our region’s premier fast bowlers from the late ’70s through the ’80s and into the early ’90s when he went on to play for the West Indies after performing professionally in the Caribbean, England, and South Africa.
