Edwin St Hill was an allrounder who won selection for West Indies in two Tests against England in 1929-30 on the strength of 67 and 6 for 117 for Trinidad in the Inter-Colonial Tournament final - both were career-best performances. But he was unimpressive in either match - in his second Test, at Georgetown, he batted at No. 11 in the first innings and No. 5 second time round. He was included in the West Indies squad for their 1930-31 tour of Australia where he played in four of the state games, taking 16 wickets at 29.81 but scored only 16 runs at 3.20. He did not play again after returning to the Caribbean. In fairness, he was no more than a moderate late-order batsman and regulation medium-pacer.
