TEAMS

Kenneth Trestrail was a Trinidadian who appeared in first-class cricket as a 16-year-old in 1943-44 and was regarded for the rest of the decade as one of the most promising young batsmen in the Caribbean. After scoring 161 not out against Jamaica, he was picked for the tour of England in 1950 but, on that triumphant trip, had a thin time. In 1953 he emigrated to Canada and returned to first-class cricket on the Canadians' 1954 tour of England, when he was both their most prolific and most entertaining batsman. He was also Trinidad's tennis champion.
