Trinidad's Bernard Julien had a bit of everything: flashing strokeplay, brilliant fielding, lively left-arm seamers from a strange, stiff-legged run; orthodox or unorthodox left-arm spin; and the ability to charm fans and females alike. He could play, but his career at the top was fitful, with only two centuries and one five-for in 24 Tests. His first hundred was a violent affair, at Lord's in 1973, when he added 231 for the seventh wicket with another handy allrounder, Garry Sobers. England were pummelled by an innings and 226 runs. He also played in the World Cup final of 1975, as well as representing Kent between 1970 and 1977. His career ended under a cloud when he received a life ban after throwing in his lot with the rebel West Indies side that toured South Africa in 1982-83.
