TEAMS

Basil Williams - known to all as Shotgun on account of his uncompromising attacking style - won his Test call-up partly on account of a good Shell Shield season in 1977-78 and largely because of the defection of many leading players to World Series Cricket. Williams hammered a hundred against an equally depleted Australian side on debut at Georgetown, ending the series with 257 runs at 42.83. That won him selection for the India tour where he again performed well, scoring 212 runs at 35.33 - including a hundred at Calcutta - but after that series the Packer rebels returned and Williams was discarded.
