Randolph Ramnarace was a very talented all-rounder from Berbice. Capable of swing the ball prodigiously in both directions, he was also a capable middle-order batsman on his day. It was probably his varying commitment to the game that prevented him from scaling the greatest heights.
He made his first class debut in 1961, for a strong Berbice team against EW Swanton's XI, at Rose Hall in Canje, Berbice, and immediately showed his ability with the ball. He had to wait five more years, however, before making his first class debut for Guyana, against Trinidad & Tobago at the Queen's Park Oval. Once again his bowling proved more than useful. His first fifty in regional cricket came in 1967, against Barbados at Bourda.
Recognition of his superlative all-round abilities came in 1968, when he was selected to represent a Rest of the World team in England, against Australia. Once again his bowling was excellent, as can be seen from his figures of 4 for 44 in the Australia second innings. That summer he also represent the International Cavaliers, a team that included players like Rohan Kanhai and Bobby Simpson, that played one-day matches in England.
In 1968 Ramnarace also played for the Surrey Second XI and in 1969 he represented Colne in the Lancashire League.
Ramnarace's fun-loving lifestyle has been the subject of several cricket anecdotes. It was said that on one occasion he left Bourda for the movie theatre, believing that a match scheduled for that day would be entirely washed out by the frequent and intense Georgetown rains. The weather changed unexpectedly, play began and Ramnarace was nowhere to be found!
