Playing Role


Ezra Moseley burst onto the scene as yet another fast bowler from the Caribbean, and he was signed by Glamorgan in 1980 on the strength of performances in club cricket in the region, and looked to be a really good prospect. He topped 50 wickets in both 1980 and 1981, and only then did he make his debut for Barbados. But he broke down with a stress fracture of his back in 1982 and underwent an operation and a lengthy recuperation. While sidelined, he was signed for the rebel West Indies side which toured South Africa in 1982-83 and as a result was slapped with a life ban. At 25 his career seemed over. He played a few games for Glamorgan in 1986, in between playing as a professional in the Lancashire Leagues.

In 1989 the life ban was withdrawn and Moseley reappeared for Barbados and then was picked to make his Test debut aged 32. He played twice against England, inadvertently turning the series when he broke Graham Gooch's hand in the third Test. He played one more season for Barbados before finishing his career with a season of Currie Cup cricket. Throughout this time he was still laying in the Lancashire Leagues, and in 1990 he turned down an offer to sign for Surrey.

After retiring he remained in the game as a coach, and ended up at St Michael, one of Barbados's top secondary schools. He is now a Barbados junior selector.
