Profile

Irvine Shillingford was a gifted batsman who made his first-class debut aged 16, but had to wait another four years for his second appearance, when he impressed batting No. 3 against the touring Australians - thereafter he scored consistently for more than a decade without coming close to international recognition. A superb 1976-77 season finally saw him called into the West Indies side at the age of 32 for the second Test against Pakistan, where he made 39 and 2, but in the third Test at Georgetown he blasted 120, but by the end of the series he had lost his place in a powerful batting line-up. He was again in excellent form the following season, hitting his career-best 238 against Leeward Islands at Castries, and when the Packer rebels disappeared he was given another chance, against Australia in Guyana. But he made 3 and 16 and was again dropped. In a different era Shillingford would have made far more than four Test appearances.
