A new series from Hampshire Cricket historian Dave Allen marks the birthdays of notable and fondly remembered Hampshire cricketers

Linden Anthony Joseph was born in Georgetown Guyana in 1969 and came to Hampshire for the season of 1990, playing regularly for the 2nd XI but also in six first-class matches.

Although he was selected as a fast bowler he has an ‘interesting’ first-class batting record for the county, having scored 152 runs in five innings, but since he was only dismissed once, he ended with an average of 152.00. His best innings and highest career score was 69* v Oxford University. His bowling was less effective however, with just seven wickets at 66.00.

He left Hampshire and in the next two seasons played in England for Enfield in the Lancashire League, but he played the majority of his 39 first-class matches for Guyana, while also appearing for West Indies ‘A’ and under-23s; from 1986-1995, he took 98 first-class wickets at 29.75.
