Who was the last white player to be selected for the WI (sr. level) before Brendan Nash?

That is the common mistake. ;-)

This is a slightly trick question.

Can't give too many hints or this would be too easy.

He was selected to go on tour not to play at home.

Some additional info:

years ago, I saw him listed as having played for the WI. I thought this was an error.

If you go to his name in espncricinfo, there is no mention of him having been selected for the WI.
However, I was looking at the performance of another cricketer and was shocked to see this fellow in the line up.

I checked and saw that he played in almost every FC match on that tour.

Answer:

Randall Lyon, the wicketkeeper for TT toured India with the WI in 1978/79 during the Packer crisis.

He was the backup to David Murray.

Here's his top score vs. South Zone.

No boss, David Murray was a very good batsman-wicketkeeper from Barbados. Son of Everton Weekes and father of Rickey Hoyte.
