Profile

There aren't many players who can look down at Chris Gayle, but at 6'7" Sulieman Benn towers over his captain and makes the likes of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Brendan Nash look like schoolboys. Built like a fast bowler, and with the fiery attitude of one, Benn is also no stranger to on-field controversies. In 2007, he was involved in an ugly incident with batsman Robin Parris during a club game at Queen's Park Oval, and in 2009 was involved in a heated on-field argument with Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson in the third Test at Perth. There were yet more charges to be added to his sheet, as Benn was dismissed from the field by his own captain during South Africa's one-day whitewashing of West Indies in 2010 after apparently refusing to bowl over the wicket, and in the Test series which followed was involved in several colourful exchanges with Dale Steyn.
