Bridgetown, Barbados:

International cricket umpire Clyde Duncan has died in Trinidad and Tobago following a brief illness.

The 57-year-old Guyanese, who stood in two Tests, 21 One-Day Internationals and six Twenty20 Internationals, had been undergoing treatment for cancer.

Guyana Cricket Board president Chetram Singh hailed Duncan's contribution to the game.

"He has contributed so much to umpiring in the West Indies, the world and Guyana and he was always willing to impart his knowledge to the youngsters," Singh told Demerara Waves Online News.

Duncan made his international debut in 1988 at an ODI between the West Indies and Pakistan in Georgetown and officiated his first Test three years later in the second Test of the five-match series between West Indies and Australia, also in Georgetown.

His second and last Test also came before his home crowd when England toured the Caribbean in 1994.

Duncan last stood in an international during South Africa's tour of the region last year when he officiated in the second ODI.

He leaves to mourn his wife and four children.
