Born on August 1, 1984, Sir Frank Worrell was the first black captain of the West Indies. An elegant batsman, he scored 3,860 runs in 51 Tests at an average of 49.48, including nine centuries. He also picked up 69 wickets with 7 for 70 being his best bowling figures in an innings.
More than his batting and bowling skills, he is remembered for his charismatic and influential personality, a person who united the team. He died on March 13, 1967 and was one of 55 members to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame on January 2, 2009.
