CHARLIE GRIFFITH

Charlie Griffith's new-ball partnership with fellow Barbadian Wes Hall was one of the game's most lethal pace combinations. He was always a handful with his toe-crunching yorkers, but it was one of his hostile bouncers that will stand out for a long time. It knocked down the Indian Nari Contractor that forced the batsman to undergo a life-saving operation. Griffith made his Test debut in 1960 against England in the Caribbean after just one first-class match, but had to wait until the tour of England in 1963 to play again. In 1964, Griffith was named as one of Wisden's Cricketers of the Year. After his playing days, he was an administrator, serving on the Barbados Cricket Association's board of management and was also a West Indies Cricket Board member.
