Profile

Given their problems of finding a stable opening pair, it seems strange that West Indies couldn't find a place for the dashing Sherwin Campbell. He was dropped after their disastrous tour of Australia in 2000-01 and has not looked like getting back since. Campbell is a curious case, a swashbuckling chancer of an opener whose flashing blade makes him a dangerous customer on any surface (his 82 was comfortably the highest score in the Lord's dogfight of 2000). But he is just as likely to die by that scything blade, and his run of scores in international matches in New Zealand in 1999-00 (170, 0, 0, 3, 51, 0, 0) are symptomatic of the man.
