Lennox "Bunny" Butler had a brief first-class career as a fast-medium bowler. An irregular member of the Trinidad side, in 1954-55 he took 5 for 89 (his only first-class five-for) for them against the Australians, a performance which won him a place in the West Indies side for the second Test at Port of Spain. On a batsman's paradise, he took 2 for 151 as Australia ran up 600 for 9 and that was that. He played only one more first-class match, for Trinidad against EW Swanton's XI the following season.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
