Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Guyana-born Surrey wicketkeeper Lonsdale Skinner represented Guyana in 11 first class and List A matches in 1974, 1976 and 1977, after participating in the pre-season trial matches at Bourda.

His family migrated to the United Kingdom before he became a teenager and he was thus unfamiliar with conditions in Guyana when he returned to play cricket. Despite this, he amply demonstrated to the Guyana selectors, to whom he was unfamiliar, that he was an efficient wicketkeeper and capable batsman.

Skinner made his debut for Guyana at Bourda against Barbados, taking over from Milton Pydanna. He retained the position until retiring from first class cricket, for both Guyana and Surrey, at the early age of 27 to return to higher education in September, 1977.
