Maurice Foster was a solid middle-order batsman and more than useful offspinner who was one of the Shell Shield's most prolific runscorers in the late 60s and early 70s. He made his Test debut against England on West Indies 1969 tour, but enjoyed his best series against Australia in 1972-73 when he averaged 43.67. He only passed fifty once in that series, but his 125 in front of his home crowd at Kingston was his only Test hundred - he had made 99 two years earlier against New Zealand. He toured England for a second time in 1973, only playing in the innings victory at Lord's (the only time he was on the winning side in 14 Tests) but thereafter his appearances were increasingly spasmodic as a new generation of batsmen emerged. The genial Foster was also an excellent table-tennis player, and at one time was West Indies champion.
