Profile

Being a West Indian spinner in the 1980s was a bit like being a trained opera singer in a boy band, so spare a thought for Clyde Butts, who was born in a village called Perseverance. He hardly got a game because of the excellence - mostly in the field - of his fellow offspinner Roger Harper, and his only chance of a bowl was if the Windies quicks didn't blow the opposition away. In the second of his seven Tests, at Lahore in 1986-87, Butts didn't get on at all, and in all he took a wicket every 155 balls - or 26 overs. He married on the rest day of his Test debut, against New Zealand in Guyana in 1984-85. Butts was the last of ten children - his parents stopped just short of a full XI. He became a national selector and headed the selection panel in July 2008.
