Profile

Easton McMorris was a right-hand opening batsman whose Test career started poorly. He scored 13 and 16 on debut against Pakistan in 1957-58, and in his next match, against England in the first Test at Bridgetown in 1959-60, was run-out at the non-striker's end without facing a ball. He then had to withdraw from the next Test after picking up an injury, but returned for the third Test and scored 73 in front of his home supporters. Poor performances in the final two matches meant that he missed out on the 1960-61 tour of Australia. He was recalled to face India in 1961-62, scoring his only Test hundred (125) at Kingston and back-to-back fifties at Port-of-Spain. He toured England in 1963 and 1966 but averaged13.38 in his four Test appearances, struggling to come to terms with the slower, greener pitches. He continued to score heavily for Jamaica in the Shell Shield, in latter years as their captain.
