ODI statistics

Cammie Smith was a fearless, attacking batsman who excelled against quick bowling but struggled to cope with spin. He was frustrating to follow, one day outstanding, the next poor. His only Test fifty came against Australia in 1960-61 as he was found out by the spinners. After retiring he managed various West Indies sides, became an ICC match referee, and remained closely associated with the development of the game in Barbados.
