Life and sports[edit]

Steve Gordon first played cricket for his native Jamaica in April 1988, playing a first-class match against Lancashire. He played just one more game for Jamaica, another first-class match, this time against the Windward Islands in February 1994.[4]

He first played for the Cayman Islands in August 2000, making his debut against the USA at the Maple Leaf Cricket Club in the ICC Americas Championship.[5] He made his List A debut that October, playing for the Cayman Islands against Guyana, Bermuda, the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands in Antigua.[6]

He played in the following two Americas Championship tournaments; in 2002,[5] when the Cayman Islands finished as runners-up,[7] and in 2004,[5] when the Caymans finished fourth.[8] He next played for the Cayman Islands in February 2005 when he played in the repêchage tournament for the 2005 ICC Trophy in Kuala Lumpur[5] with the Caymans finishing in 5th place after beating Kuwait in a play-off.[9]

He returned to first-class cricket in August 2005, playing two matches for the Cayman Islands in the 2005 ICC Intercontinental Cup at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club against Bermuda and Canada.[4] In July the following year, he played in the inaugural Stanford 20/20 tournament, playing two matches against the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago before the Cayman Islands were knocked out.[10] He played in the Americas Championship the following month, winning the man of the match award against Canada[11] as the Caymans finished fourth ahead of Argentina.[12]

He most recently played for the Cayman Islands in Division Three of the World Cricket League[13] in Darwin, Australia, with the Cayman Islands finishing fourth after losing a play-off to Papua New Guinea.[14]
