Profile

Not many batsmen make 250 in a Test but average only 26, but Faoud Bacchus, who was born today, did precisely that. That 250 came at Kanpur in 1978-79, and he might have made more had he not slipped and hit his own wicket. But he also made seven ducks in 30 innings, and a couple of chaps called Greenidge and Haynes made getting back into the side virtually impossible. He played 19 Tests for West Indies in the late 1970s and early '80s in all, remarkably every one of them on a different Test ground. He returned 15 years later, at 43, to play ICC Trophy cricket for USA where he now lives.
