"Prof" Edwards was a fast bowler who toured Australia and New Zealand in 1968-69 under the wings of Wes Hall and Charlie Griffith. He struggled on the Australia wickets and in his two Tests took 3 for 274, although he wasn't helped by poor fielding. In New Zealand he fared better, taking 6 for 129 in the first Test and 7 for 126 in the second, including 5 for 84 in the first innings. As West Indies looked to rebuild for the future, Edwards, already 28 at the time of his debut, slipped out of the reckoning. He continued to be involved in Barbados cricket.
