Seymour Nurse was a powerfully-built batsman and excellent close fielder right out of the top drawer. He was a middle-order strokemaker from Barbados who didn't really establish himself until the 1966 West Indian tour of England, when he was 32. Nurse then passed 50 five times in as many Tests, and though he hammered 137 at Headingley his best innings probably came at Trent Bridge, where he thumped a majestic 93 in trying circumstances. He was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1967, and finished his Test career with a magnificent 258 at Christchurch in 1968-69.
