Sir Trevor of Trinidad
Sir Trevor MacDonald, the veteran ITN newsreader, talks to the Daily Telegraph about his love of cricket which, he claims, "developed in the womb ... like a West Indian contagion".
"I remember, in Trinidad, playing from the age of four, hammering in stumps in neighbours' backyards and fashioning bats from the branches of coconut trees.
"There is a natural bend in that type of wood that can explain the tendency of many Caribbean cricketers to go for the hook stroke."
