“Our deepest condolences to Runako Morton’s family. Such devastating and tragic news,” the board said on its official Twitter account, after the 33-year-old’s death was announced.

Morton, who played 15 Tests for the West Indies, scoring 573 runs at an average of 22.03, died when he lost control of his car and careered off the road in Trinidad on Sunday, according to the Trinidad Express newspaper’s web site.

His last appearance for his country came against Australia in a Twenty20 international in 2010.

Morton’s career was blotted by disciplinary breaches.

He was expelled from the West Indian Academy in July 2001, and a year later was called up to the injury-plagued West Indies squad as a replacement for Marlon Samuels.

He pulled out of the ICC Champions Trophy in September 2002, after lying about the death of his grandmother. His career slipped further when he was arrested (though released without charge) in January 2004, following a stabbing incident. (AFP)
