Playing Role


A valuable support act for Courtney Walsh and Curtly Ambrose, Kenny Benjamin helped to prop up West Indies' fading pace dynasty until the late 1990s. Like a Caribbean Lance Klusener, he took a very straight approach to the wicket, then bowled from the shoulder, without much attempt at body action. A well-built fast bowler (with those middle names he had to be) from Antigua, he made his Test debut in the inaugural match against South Africa in 1991-92 and then once on the tour of Australia the following winter. Although onlt taking two wickets at Adelaide, he subjected the Australians to a fast and furious barrage. But he really burst into the limelight against England in 1993-94, grabbing 6 for 66 in the first Test at Kingston (adding to his mean reputation by being warned for bouncing tailenders) and then seven wickets in the next match. He ended the series with 22 wickets. He struggled the following winter against Australia, but was the best bowler on the 1995 tour of England, swinging the ball more reliably than anyone except Dominic Cork. He played 10 of his 26 Tests with the unrelated Winston Benjamin.
