Ivor Mendonca

Ivor Mendonca was a brilliant wicketkeeper and competent batsman for Guyana and the West Indies in the early 1960s. His two Test appearances came when Jackie Hendriks was injured, in the second and fourth Tests against India in 1962. On his debut, at Kingston, he scored 78 and took four catches and a stumping. In his other Test he again made five dismissals, but Deryck Murray was preferred for the 1963 England tour after Hendriks retired.

Guyanese Test Keepers

"Guyana's production of wicket-keepers has been somewhat limited. Wicket-keeping has remained Guyana's major weakness."
