Profile

Wilton St Hill was one of the first high-class black batsmen to emerge from the Caribbean. Tall and athletic, he was strong off his legs, and he made his debut for Trinidad in 1912-13 aged 19. By the time West Indies begun to be considered for Test status he was already well past 30, and when in 1925-26 he hammered 105 off the touring MCC, Lord Harris commented that he thought St Hill to be the finest batsman in the West Indies. Much was expected when he toured England with West Indies in 1928 - their first official tour - but he was a huge disappointment, making 54 runs in four innings, and only 262 at 10.91 in the entire summer. In 1929-30 he again impressed against MCC with another hundred, but failed in the resulting Test at his home ground. It was his last first-class innings.
