Esmond Kentish was a medium-fast bowler who was renowned for his stamina. His two Test appearances were both against England - in 1947-48 and 1953-54 - and both on his home ground at Kingston. In the first game he took 3 for 106, but six years later turned in a match-winning 5 for 49 after a wicketless first innings, bowling on or outside leg stump to a seven-man leg-side field. Despite this he was not picked again. In 1956 Kentish, by then 39, won a Blue for Oxford, at the time the oldest man to do so. After retiring he became involved in cricket administration and managed several overseas tours. He was also a governor of the Bank of Jamaica. He died aged 94.
