Profile

Barbados-born Nolan Clarke hammered 159 for Barbados against Mike Denness's England tourists in 1973-74 with what the Wisden Almanack described as "such power and confidence that might have been devastating international attacks for years". Twenty-two years later, at the age of 47, Clarke finally got to play international cricket, for the Netherlands in the 1995-96 World Cup, although he only got 50 runs in five innings. He'd done more than most to get them there, having scored 121 not out against Bermuda in the ICC Trophy play-off that clinched their place.
