Profile

Built more like a bouncer than a bowler, his left-arm spin proved an enormous asset to Bermuda - both in terms of his wicket-taking potential and the containment he offered. But his bulk - he conservatively tops the scales at 20 stones (280lbs) - often overshadows his accuracy and penetration. On Bermuda's Intercontinental Cup debut in USA he took 7 for 57 in a losing cause. A year later he grabbed 11 for 72 in the same competition against the Cayman Islands. He was just much an asset in the one-day game, although that had to be offset against his fielding which was, when Bermuda did not need a slip, a real liability. His batting was not much better, and while he could thump the ball, he was almost always restricted to singles, regardless of where the ball was hit. He played a key role in Bermuda qualifying for the 2007 World Cup by taking 4 for 39 against the USA and 3 for 34 against the USA in the 2005 ICC Trophy. In that tournament he was reduced to a peripheral figure, although off the pitch he acquired cult status, and his remarkable one-handed diving catch against India, and the seismograph-breaking celebratory run which followed, delighted picture editors across the globe. He was unable to arrest Bermuda's slide and he retired after they failed to retain their ODI status in 2009. Away from cricket, Leverock drives a prison van.
