In 1960, against most predictions, the England cricket team won their first ever series in the West Indies. Even against a home side boasting Hall and Watson, Worrell, Sobers and Ramadhin, the visitors – fuelled by the bowling of Trueman and Statham and a batting order including Dexter, Barrington and Subba Row – emerged triumphant over five tests.
Alan Ross describes the action in graphic detail, including some violent scenes at Port-of-Spain. And as always he paints vivid pictures in words of all that he saw outside of the cricket grounds, from Spanish Town, Jamaica, to Nelson’s dockyard in Antigua, and the carnival in Trinidad.
‘Alan Ross has established himself as one of the most graceful and cultured of cricket writers.’ Times
