Profile

Eldine Baptiste played 10 Tests over seven years - and West Indies won the lot. It's ironic that Baptiste has such an unblemished record, because he hardly set the world alight. Baptiste - who made his first-class debut for Kent, in 1981 - was a useful bowling allrounder, who wielded the willow with a typical Caribbean flourish, particularly when he walloped 87 at Edgbaston in 1984. He could field too: that summer he famously ran out Geoff Miller at Lord's, knocking his middle stump out of the ground from 80 yards away. He later took up coaching, most successfully with the Stanford 20/20 Super Stars who won the $20 million prize in 2008 after beating England. In September 2009 he was appointed Kenya coach.
