Never heard of him. Saw him for the first time when I watched the highlights of the 1st day of the West Indies vs. India 2nd Test.

Yes, he took the catch for the dismissal of the first Indian wicket. I thought my eyes were deceiving me. Thought he had to be a substitute and even that surprised me. I can’t remember seeing any fat West Indian cricketers. Then he came onto bowl — spin, of course. This guy can’t run.

Yes, he was involved in three wickets — two catches and one as a bowler.

But, this to I is not right. He won’t be able to run! That is not fair on others.

Yes, though his batting was entertaining I always found Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad incongruous. He did not look like a cricketer and that kind of came to be in the last 18-months. He basically couldn’t play cricket.

Yes, I am old enough to remember and to have even seen Colin Milburn. But, that was a different era and Colin was fairly fit.

This guy, however, in my opinion, is the last straw for the still struggling West Indies cricket team. He looks a joke. I am SORRY.
