Profile

A middle-order batsman who became an opener later in his career, Peter Lashley was part of West Indies squad as early as 1960-61 when he toured Australia - without any real success - on the back of a good hundred for Barbados against British Guiana the season before. He played in the first and last Tests of the series, scoring 78 runs in four innings. His next chance came when he toured England in 1966, where he played in the third and fourth Tests. At Nottingham he scored a patient 49, but failed at Leeds and was dropped, never to return. It was scant reward for one of Barbados's most talented batsmen, although Michael Manley, in his A History of West Indian Cricket gives a hint of the reasons Lashley didn't get more chances when he refers to him "failing to a tendency to hit across the line". In a 17-year first-class career he scored 3994 runs at 48.70 runs for Barbados, including 2736 at 55.83 in the Shell Shield with six hundreds. He was also an outstanding close fielder.
