Sir Garry Sobers: Early Life, Age, Wiki, Parents, Ethnicity

Chaumont and Thelma Sobers gave birth to him on July 28, 1936, in Bridgetown, Barbados. He was the fifth of his family’s six children.
His father died at sea in January 1942 when his ship was torpedoed by a German U-boat. He was born with two extra fingers, one on each hand, which he removed himself as a child.

He was recruited to play for two cricket teams at the age of 13, where he gained valuable experience by bowling to Wanderers batsmen during net practice and quickly developed his great skill as a left arm spin bowler.

Education, Schooling, University

He attended Bay St. School in Barbados for his early education. He was a gifted young man who excelled in a variety of sports, including cricket, football, and basketball..

Professional Career, (Cricketer)

At the age of 16, he made his first-class debut against the Indian touring team at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown in 1953. He did not score many runs while batting, but he made an immediate impact as a bowler, taking seven wickets in the match.
He made his international test debut at the age of 17 against England at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. He took four wickets in the game and was impressed as a pace bowler.

From 1954 to 1957, he appeared in several domestic and international test series against Australia, New Zealand, and England. He was able to make an appearance in some of the matches, but he was unable to convert good starts into high scores.
One of his more mature performances came in the 1957 Oval test against England when his team was bundled out for 89 and 86 in successive innings, but he scored 39 and 42. In the match, no other West Indian player achieved an individual score of 30.

During the years 1958-1965, he demonstrated his true talent, scoring more than a dozen centuries against teams such as India and England. His most memorable batting performance, however, was his maiden Test century against Pakistan in Kingston. He went on to convert his century into an unbeaten 365, breaking England’s Len Hutton’s 1938 world record Test score of 364.

In the 1964-65 home series against Australia, he captained the West Indies for the first time, and they won 2-1. Under his captaincy, the West Indies also won test series against England in 1966 and against India in 1966-67.

During his captaincy, he was also chastised for his controversial declaration against England in the 1967-68 home series, which resulted in West Indies losing a test match that was headed for a draw.

He also captained the ‘Rest of the World XI’ team in test series against England in 1970 and Australia in 1972.
He also played in English league cricket, Australian domestic first-class competitions, and English county championships. He took one wicket in his only One-Day International against England in 1973.

In 1974, he played his final Test match against England at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and Tobago. In 93 Tests, he took 235 wickets at an average of 34.03 and scored 8032 runs, including 26 centuries and 30 half-centuries.
