TEAMS

When he made his debut against India at Bombay, Rajinder Dhanraj was West Indies' first legspinner since David Holford in 1977. Jeff Dujon warned that he would be "cannon fodder" for the Indians, but he took two wickets in the match and acquitted himself well. He picked up four wickets in his second Test against New Zealand later that season, but in England in 1995 he was savaged on his only outing, taking 0 for 191 and bowling dreadfully at Nottingham. He only got one more chance, taking 2 for 165 against New Zealand in Antigua. A genuine No. 11, he was an expensive luxury that West Indies could not afford. He continued to perform well for Trinidad where he was far more effective. Unlike many legspinners, Dhanraj dis not have a big loop but he got good nip off the pitch and no mean turn. Importantly, he bowled with a big heart and could take some stick.
