Profile

Albert Padmore was unfortunate to be a good offspinner in an era when pace was the order of the day in the Caribbean. With an action modeled on Lance Gibbs, he promised much, but he had to wait until 1975-76 to make his Test debut, taking 1 for 134 from 74 overs. He toured England in 1976, grabbing 59 wickets at 23.38 as the country sweltered in a heatwave, but he got only one outing in the Tests, and even then bowled only three overs at Manchester. Frustrated, he joined Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket in 1977, and then the rebel tour of South Africa in 1983, for which he received a life ban. He subsequently emigrated to Florida.
