Herbert Chang was a diminutive left-hand batsman whose one chance at the highest level came on West Indies tour of India in 1978-79, but in the fourth Test at Madras he failed, scoring 6 and 2, and that was that. He had gained selection for the tour after several consistent seasons with Jamaica, and that form continued after his Indian trip. In 1981-82 he made 426 runs but still didn't get a look in. In frustration, he threw in his lot with the rebel West Indies side which toured South Africa and received a life ban. He returned home but has led a troubled existence since.
