Wisden obituary
Emmanuel Alfred Martindale, who died at Bridgetown on March 17, aged 63, played as a fast bowler in ten Test matches for the West Indies between 1933 and 1939, taking 37 wickets for 21.72 runs each. During his one* tour of England, in 1933, he and L. N. Constantine caused a sensation by bowling the type of leg-theory in the Old Trafford Test which had aroused such acrimony in Australia the previous winter. D. R. Jardine, instigator of this method of attack, despite receiving heavy punishment, put together 127, his only Test century. In that tour Martindale took 103 wickets -- 14 of them in the three Tests -- his performances including eight wickets for 32 runs against Essex; eight for 39 against Sir Lindsay Parkinson's XI and eight for 66 against Nottinghamshire. His pace was remarkable in view of the fact that he stood no higher than 5 ft. 8½ in. Manny Martindale spent a number of years in League cricket in the North of England, where he earned much popularity and respect, both on and off the field. On returning to his native Barbados, he became a coach.
