Milton Small had the misfortune to be a good fast bowler in an era when West Indies had several great ones in their side. Gangling, slightly awkward but able to swing the ball into the right hander, Small was slightly shy of being genuinely fast. He made his debut for Barbados against Trinidad in January 1984, taking eight wickets - including 5 for 57 in the first innings - and although he failed to set the world alight in his next three Shell Shield matches, he was called into the West Indies side for the second Test against Australia - replacing Winston Davis - where he was second-change bowler behind Joel Garner, Wayne Daniel and Malcolm Marshall, taking 1 for 75. His inclusion in the 1984 squad to tour England was a surprise, and he won his second and last cap when brought in for the injured Michael Holding at Lord's. He took 3 for 41 in the second innings, but his tour ended early when he was forced to return home with a knee injury which kept him out of almost all the next domestic season. Injury and poor form meant he was unable to win back his place in the Barbados side for almost four years, but he played the majority of the 1988-89 season, taking 20 wickets at 22.05, including a career-best 6 for 55 in his comeback match against Trinidad. But his form was patchy and he fell out of the reckoning again, playing only one more game - in 1990-91 when he took 0 for 127 - before disappearing for good.
