Profile

Throughout Rohan Kanhai's career, whether at county or Test level, he was in the midst of great players, and it speaks volumes for his own ability that he sparkled as brightly as the gems around him. Consider some of the illustrious names in the West Indies side in the 22-year-old's first Test in 1957 against England at Edgbaston: Sonny Ramadhin, Clyde Walcott, Everton Weekes, Garfield Sobers and Frank Worrell. Ten years later he was playing with Charlie Griffith, Wes Hall and Lance Gibbs. At the end of his Test career he was lining up with Roy Fredericks, Alvin Kallicharran, Clive Lloyd, Vanburn Holder and Andy Roberts. And during his time in England with Warwickshire he was at the heart of an excellent batting line-up: John Jameson, Dennis Amiss, Kallicharran and MJK Smith formed the top five batsman with Kanhai.
