Steve Camacho came from a solid cricketing background (his grandfather, GC Learmond, played first-class cricket for Barbados and Trinidad) and was a decent Test opener and a pioneer in West Indies cricket administration. He was the WICB's first full-time employee and was at various stages secretary, chief executive and a Test selector. He played 11 Tests himself, his sober style perfectly complementing the expansive batsmanship of his opening partners Roy Fredericks and Seymour Nurse. He topped the averages in England in 1969 but never made a Test hundred. The closest he came was in Trinidad in 1967-68 when he made 87, a match notorious for a generous declaration from Garry Sobers that allowed England to romp to a seven-wicket victory.
