George Headley Pop Art
Described by Wisden as “the best batsman the West Indies have ever produced”, George Headley was the first Black captain of the West Indies team in a Test match against England in 1948.
In 1939, Headley was the first cricketer to score two hundreds in a Lord’s Test, an accomplishment not repeated until 1990.
The iconic player was hailed globally as one of the greatest of the world, second only to Don Bradman at the time.
Regarded as one of the best ever batsman, George Headley’s 2,190 runs in 22 Tests at 60.83, and a First-Class cricket average of 69.86, stands third in the all-time list of averages of players.
Headley was signed to play for Haslingden where he broke the record for most runs scored by any player in a Lancashire League season, accumulating 1,360, at an average of 97.15, with five centuries.
A living legend in the West Indies, welcomed as a hero when he returned and nicknamed “Atlas” as a successful player bestriding the world of cricket, the Jamaican Prime Minister described Headley as “Black excellence personified in a white world and a white sport”.
