Playing Role

Bowler

Winston Benjamin had the bit of devil that marked out many of his West Indian peers as great fast bowlers, but he only ever really attained the ranks of the good. Short and whippy, in 21 Tests (spread over nearly eight years) he never took a five-for and never took the new ball. He could give the ball a fearful thump - he smeared a run-a-ball 85 off New Zealand in 1994-95 - and he even won a Test with the bat. It was a crucial one too: in 1987-88 he preserved West Indies' status as the world's best with a crucial 40 not out in a series-levelling two-wicket win over Pakistan in Barbados. And in England in 1988 he topped the bowling averages with 12 wickets at 12.58.
