DAVID ALLAN

David Allan made his debut at Kensington Oval in 1962 against India, claiming ten dismissals in his first two Tests – eight catches and two stumpings. This impressive start to his international career won him selection on the tour to England in 1963, but it was insufficient to give him a place in the XI as Deryck Murray was given the nod for that series. He also had to contend with Jackie Hendriks who, too, was vying for the wicket keeper slot. In 1966, Allan returned to England – one of nine Barbadians on that tour – when Hendriks was injured. He played two Test before Hendriks returned to put back on the gloves. In addition to his five Tests, he also played 54 first-class matches
