Pascall Roberts represented Paragon Cricket Club in the 1960s and 1970s, played 67 first-class matches and after his retirement became a selector for the Trinidad and Tobago national team. He was part of the West Indies squad that toured England in 1969, but never got his Test cap. He started his career as a left-arm seam bowler and took 5 for 79 on his first-class debut, against Barbados. He later changed to left-arm spin, and formed a deadly combination with offspinner Jack Noreiga. He is known as much for his achievements as a player as for the contribution he made post-retirement towards the development of cricket in Trinidad and Tobago.
