Former T&T and West Indies cricketer
Charran Singh passed away at age 79 on
Singh, who was born in San Juan on
November 27, 1935, was married to Maya,
with whom he had three children. He also
had two grandchildren. Singh s funeral was
held at Abdool Ghany Street in Aranguez on
Saturday November 21.
Singh played two Test matches for West
Indies in 1960, both against England. He
bowled left-arm spin and batted left-handed,
and is most remembered for being in the
middle of a scene from which a riot evolved
in a match between West Indies and England
at the Queen s Park Oval.
Playing at home on Test debut in 1960,
Singh was run out shortly after tea.
Writer Nasser Khan writes of the incident
in the following article.
It was the run-out of local hero, spin
bowler Charran Singh, in the Test match
against England, deemed not out by many
of the spectators in the crowd, that incited
a riot, leading to a shower of bottles and
debris onto the Queen s Park Oval cricket
ground on January 30, 1930. Back in those
days a Test match was a much anticipated
event in the sporting calendar and the Oval
was usually filled to capacity, as it was on
this day. This was cricket at its best and lim-
ited-overs cricket had not come on the scene
The teams were star-studded, with Eng-
land having in their team Peter May, Colin
Cowdrey, Tom Graveney, and Fred Trueman
and the West Indies stars like Garry Sobers,
Frank Worrell, Rohan Kanhai, Conrad Hunte,
Charlie Griffith, Trinidadian Sonny Ramadin
and fellow local hero and newcomer Charran
Back in those days, action started at 11am
with just about five hours play and went for
six days, with a rest day after the third.
On the third day, just after the tea break,
with the West Indies innings in ruins, out
strode Test debutant Charran Singh at num-
ber nine. A huge cheer erupted to welcome
the hometown player. No sooner had the
cheering died down than, in attempting a
suicidal run, he was adjudged to be run out
by umpire Eric Lee Kow. As Singh dejectedly
made his way back to the pavilion, the may-
hem started, with hundreds if not thousands
of bottles raining first from the Guinness
Stand and then, within minutes, from all
around the Oval.
The turmoil and fury unleashed were not
becoming of a sporting event, or any event
for that matter, as the riot squad appeared
on the scene in an attempt to quell the riot
and stop the flow of bottles being pelted
onto the field.
Despite the pleas of the authorities (includ-
ing Premier Dr Eric Williams and Learie
Constantine), the crowd remained agitated,
but eventually things calmed down after the
police, some on horseback, as well as fire-
brigade hoses, went into action.
No play was possible for the rest of the
day and the sea of bottles and debris had to
be cleared before the next day s play. The
incident was celebrated in calypso by the
late Yul Bryner.
Charran Singh remembered in song
Fire brigade hoses, go into action after things calm down following a riot at the Queen's
Park Oval cricket ground in 1960. It was run-out of local hero, spin bowler Charran Singh, in
a Test match against England, deemed not out by many of the spectators in the crowd,
that incited the riot, leading to a shower of bottles and debris onto the field.
RIOT IN THE OVAL --- By Lord Bryner
Don't doubt me, don't doubt me
Because ah saying what ah see
At the Test match in Queen's Park Oval
Right after the tea interval
From the time Charran Singh get run out
Ah don't know where all those bottles come.
But it was bottle and stone riot in the Oval
The Test match turn to a carnival,
Ah had to hide me head inside a canal
Lee Kow was like Nasser in the Suez Canal
Right in the middle of the Federal Capital
It was rotten and bad
And a shame to the island of Trinidad
After we had such a good sporting name
One little thing make we lose we fame
It will take us 15 years or more
To get back the good name, I am sure
So MCC take this apology please
On behalf of Trinidad, Bryner, and the West Indies.
I was on my heels.
When the Premier and the Governor
came to the field.
They started raising their hands up
Signalling the rioters to stop
Well that didn't help anything
They started calling louder
to bring back Charran Singh
Then ah only hear fling like a bottle fly
And it lick out the Premier
glasses clean from he eye
Any how I think am sure
This kind of things
would not happen no more
Because we all should understand
West Indian cricket back bone is England
Because the same Charran Singh
that didn't get the run
Might be in Lancashire
in a few months to come
And when England send him
back to the West Indies.
You must call him Sir Charran Singh
if you please.
