This led to the ostracism of almost all members of that squad by the people of the Caribbean countries, and for some this was very severe. A number found it difficult to deal with, particularly those who could not leave their Caribbean communities, and the lives of a few completely disintegrated. This was the case with Austin, and following his retirement from cricket, he came to rely on alcohol and drugs to help him deal with the issue, and ultimately became homeless. He died aged 60. His death was announced on 7 February 2015.


Following his WSC stint from 1977 to 1979, Austin believed that he would not make the West Indian side again, and so joined the Rebel West Indies team that twice toured South Africa - during apartheid - in 1982 and 1984, under the leadership of Lawrence Rowe. Rowe apologised on 20 June 2011, to the cricketing fraternity of Jamaica, the Caribbean and the rest of the world on behalf of that ill-fated team.


Austin also played in the Lancashire League for Church Cricket Club in 1978 and Enfield Cricket Club in 1982.


Some good form by Austin saw him come into contention for a place in the strong West Indies Test side. He also accepted an offer in 1977 to join World Series Cricket, a private cricket competition run by Kerry Packer. In March 1978, when an Australian side - minus its WSC players - toured the West Indies, Austin was included in the squad for the first two Tests of the series. He was originally chosen for the third Test at Bourda Cricket Ground, but the WICB excluded him from the side, along with Desmond Haynes and Deryck Murray because of World series connections. This led to skipper Clive Lloyd, and the other WSC players in the West Indian side refusing to play in the Test in protest.


Austin made his List A cricket debut for Jamaica on 22 February 1976 against Barbados at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados, opening the batting and scoring three, and taking 0/7 from two overs.


Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Austin was a multi-talented sportsman, being "a footballer and table tennis player of note" on top of his cricketing skills. He represented the Jamaica Under-19s before making his first-class cricket debut for Jamaica on 21 March 1975 against Trinidad and Tobago at Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, making 0 and 74 and taking three wickets for 34 runs (3/34).


Richard Arkwright Austin (5 September 1954 – 7 February 2015) was an international cricketer from Jamaica, who played two Tests and one One Day International for the West Indies.
