Lennox "Bunny" Butler had a brief first-class career as a fast-medium bowler. An irregular member of the Trinidad side, in 1954-55 he took 5 for 89 (his only first-class five-for) for them against the Australians, a performance which won him a place in the West Indies side for the second Test at Port of Spain. On a batsman's paradise, he took 2 for 151 as Australia ran up 600 for 9 and that was that. He played only one more first-class match, for Trinidad against EW Swanton's XI the following season.
