TEAMS

Barbados's Carlisle Best began his Test career in true calypso style - his first scoring shot was a hooked six, third ball, off Ian Botham. That was at Jamaica in 1985-86, but Best's best came four years later, also against England. On his home ground he laced a tremendous 164 in a series-levelling victory. That was his zenith: his next four innings, in Pakistan in 1990-91, brought scores of 1, 8, 6 and 4. Best was not picked again. He hit the public eye in 1976 when, as a schoolboy, he scored more than 800 runs in the Association's Division II, and was selected for Barbados. He became a regular in the side following the rebel South Afrcia tours in the mid 1980s.
