Profile

Thelston Payne was a capable wicketkeeper, always in a sun hat, who was destined to be understudy to Jeff Dujon for much of his career. He was in the West Indies squad as second-choice keeper on the 1984 tour of England, in Australia 1984-85, and on later trips to New Zealand, Pakistan and Sharjah. His one chance came when Dujon missed the second Test against England at Port-of-Spain in 1986 through injury, and her held five catches in a comprehensive win. But Dujon recovered, and that was that. "I felt I could have played as a batsman," Payne later reflected. "I toured around for a few years and got just one Test and seven ODIs and had to watch on as others failed. I made three consecutive hundreds in 1983 and I knew I was good enough to play as a batsman."
