Player Biography

Eldine Baptiste played 10 Tests over seven years – and West Indies won the lot. It’s ironic that Baptiste has such an unblemished record, because he hardly set the world alight. Baptiste – who made his first-class debut for Kent, in 1981 – was a useful bowling allrounder, who wielded the willow with a typical Caribbean flourish, particularly when he walloped 87 at Edgbaston in 1984. He could field too: that summer he famously ran out Geoff Miller at Lord’s, knocking his middle stump out of the ground from 80 yards away.
