Joe Small played in the First Test Match between England and the West Indies at Lord's in 1928, his score of 52 in the second innings being the highest for the West Indies in the game. This tall, loose-limbed allrounder, who did much fine work for Trinidad, hit 595 runs, average 18.59, in the tour, his highest innings being 106 not out against the University at Oxford, and with offbreaks dismissed 50 batsmen for 28.88 runs each. He also toured England in 1923, averaging 31.04 for 776 runs, including innings of 94 and 68 in the match against Lancashire at Old Trafford, but took only 19 wickets, average 33.47. Altogether Small, who was a splendid slip fieldsman, scored 2,995 runs, average 25.50, and took over 100 wickets.
