Profile

Nevis-born slow left-armer Elquemedo Willett was the first man from the Leeward Islands to play for West Indies when he made his debut as a 19-year-old against Australia in 1972-73. He took two wickets, and five in the next two Tests - including his best of 3 for 33 at Port-of-Spain. In was enough to ensure he toured England in 1973, where he took 30 wickets but was unable to break into the Test side. He then toured India and Pakistan in 1974-75, taking two wickets in each of his Tests. But in an era when selectorial consistency was not to the fore, another chance never came, and with the advent of West Indies all-pace attack, he faded into the shadows, although he carried on playing for another 14 seasons. While his impact on the field was limited, his inclusion in the West Indies side had a massive impact on cricket in the Caribbean's smaller islands, where players had hitherto felt ignored.
