Tony White was a determined allrounder who could be relied on for a timely innings or break off a flow of runs with his reliable offspin or medium pace. He won a place on the 1963 tour of England as a replacement for Willie Rodrigues, but didn't play a Test. When he did make his international debut, he top-scored with 63 against Australia at Kingston, but was dropped following a disappointing game at Port-of-Spain.
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
