Dickie Fuller, a right-hand middle-order batsman and fast-medium bowler, made his first-class debut for Jamaica against the touring MCC aged 20, and nine days was drafted into the West Indies side for the fourth Test at Sabina Park. That call-up came thanks to four wickets on debut for Jamaica, and then an unbeaten 113, also against Jamaica, in the second match against the tourists. Fuller's debut was uneventful, scoring 1 and bowling eight wicketless overs in West Indies' innings victory. He played once more before the war - against a touring Yorkshire XI - in 1935-36 and then four more games over a decade later. All eight of his first-class appearances came in Kingston.
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
