Willie Rodriguez was a good allrounder who failed to reproduce his best performances at Test level. He scored a fifty on his debut against India at Port-of-Spain in 1961-62, but his tour of England in 1963 was a disappointment, largely because of injury. He appeared infrequently after that tour, but returned to manage West Indies in Australia in 1979-80. Rodriguez also represented Trinidad at football.
