Profile

A tidy if unspectacular wicketkeeper and sound opening batsman, Desmond Lewis made his Test debut within eight months of his first-class bow for Jamaica, largely thanks to 96 and 67* against the touring Indians. He scored 81 not out in his first game - the third Test at Georgetown - and opening with Roy Fredericks at Bridgetown in the fourth Test made 88. In the final Test at Port-of-Spain he chipped in with 72. But despite averaging 86.33 in the three matches he was discarded in favour of Michael Findlay for the 1971-72 tour of New Zealand - Findlay himself was soon replaced by the returning Deryck Murray. He continued to score consistently for Jamaica until 1975-75.
