Tino Best has brought qualities to the West Indies bowling attack that were missing for too long. He is aggressive, confident and energetic, and carries the fight to the very end.
He topped the regional averages in 2003 and was selected for the third Test at home to Australia in May 2003, although he didn't take a wicket. Temperamentally, he has been likened to his fellow Barbadian, the great Wes Hall, especially in his exuberance and speed.
Clocking in as fast as 92mph, Best has yet to learn control - physically and mentally - but with time and experience he could be right up there among the lethal best, as long as his body (he's only 5ft 8ins) can stand the strain.
