Profile

Wisden overview
One of the few Test players to emerge from the tiny island of Grenada, Junior Murray was a batsman-cum-wicketkeeper who never quite proved himself in either department. He rarely looked elegant behind the stumps, being too tall and heavy-handed to rival Jeffrey Dujon, his svelte predecessor. And although his bottom-fisted batting earned him one Test hundred, and a regular berth as a one-day opener, an average of 24 was also well short of Dujon's benchmark of 32. Some shoes are hard to fill.
