Douglas Sang Hue stood in 31 Tests over almost 20 years, but the bulk of his appearances came in the 1970s. He first stood at Sabina Park in 1961-62 in what was also his first first-class match, but through the 1970s he stood in most Caribbean Tests. In 1972-73 he became the first person to stand in al five Tests in a series in the West Indies, a feat he repeated the following season against England. In 1977, after a summer spent officiating in England, he signed for Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket and that led to him being dropped by the West Indies board, although Bobby Simpson, the Australian captain, had objected to him standing on grounds of incompetence. He returned in 1981 for three Tests but that was his lot, although he continued in domestic cricket until 1988.

England's recklessness in the name of positivity is a sign that the art of batting in the longest format is no longer given due attention
It was always going to take at least two players to even come close to replicating what one of the great allrounders offered and at Trent Bridge that pair may have been found
