Profile

Seymour Nurse was a powerfully-built batsman and excellent close fielder right out of the top drawer. He was a middle-order strokemaker from Barbados who didn't really establish himself until the 1966 West Indian tour of England, when he was 32. Nurse then passed 50 five times in as many Tests, and though he hammered 137 at Headingley his best innings probably came at Trent Bridge, where he thumped a majestic 93 in trying circumstances. He was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1967, and finished his Test career with a magnificent 258 at Christchurch in 1968-69.

One of Barbados' and the West Indies' all-time batting greats was in the nets at Yorkshire Sports Club, Friendship, St Michael, yesterday, giving tips on the art of batting to current national cricketers. Cricket legend Seymour Nurse, dressed in blue Barbados track pants and white tee-shirt and still looking fairly fit for someone 73 years old, positioned himself behind the stumps so that he could detect any flaws in the batsmen's technique, Barbados, December 30, 2006
