Profile

Leslie Walcott was already 35 by the time West Indies played their inaugural Test, and that one game - against England at Bridgetown - was to be his only outing. He performed well - he scored 24 and 16* and took one wicket. Walcott, an allrounder who bowled flat offspin, carried on playing for Barbados until he was over 40.
