Sheridan Raynor (7 July 1934 – 10 December 2011) was a Bermudian cricketer. He was a left-handed batsman and a left-arm spin bowler. Though he only played one first-class match for Bermuda, against New Zealand in 1972,[1] his abilities were such that Gary Sobers wanted Raynor to play for the West Indies team, however Raynor was ineligible due to his nationality at the time.[2] Instead, Raynor worked as a taxi driver and spray mechanic outside of cricket.[3]

Raynor died on December 10, 2011 as a result of complications from a stroke which he had suffered a year previously and which he had never regained consciousness from.[4] Upon hearing the news of his death, the Bermudian parliament paused proceedings in tribute, and he was inducted into the Bermuda Sporting Hall of Fame.[2][3]
