In April 2002, after capturing 41 wickets in an impressive season for Leeward Islands, Adam Sanford made history as the first indigenous Carib to play for West Indies. Born in Dominica, but now living and working as a policeman in Antigua, Sanford went on to play in all five Tests against India, and picked up important wickets at regular intervals without quite winning over his critics. Hardly an express bowler, Sanford is nonetheless rated as "awkward" by Ian Bishop, for his ability to make the odd delivery explode from nowhere. But his lack of pace caused him problems, and against England in 2003-04 he was described by Geoff Boycott as being a medium pacer who " couldn't have got me granny out". Andrew Miller
