Uton Dowe was a well-built fast bowler who made a good debut, taking 4 for 69 against India at Kensington Oval but failed to impress thereafter. Prone to being wildly erratic, he was mauled by Keith Stackpole to such an extent in the Jamaican Test of 1971-72 that the crowd erected a series of banners proclaiming an 11th commandment: "Dowe shalt not bowl."
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
