Life at the top was a mixed bag for Keith Arthurton. A dashing left-hander and an outstanding cover fielder, he certainly had his moments: an unbeaten 157 at Brisbane in 1992-93, a century against England in Jamaica in 1993-94, and a flurry of strutting seventies. But for all the bluster, Arthurton - only the third Test player from the small island of Nevis - was never quite as good as his Caribbean predecessors: he made eight ducks in 33 Tests, and his international career never recovered from a horrible 1996 World Cup, in which he made two runs in five innings.
