    Jimmy Adams

    Jimmy Adams was a great player in the mid 90's. very people know that he was averaging in the 60's in test matches during that time.

    Yeah, Jimmy Adams had a real purple patch near the start of his career, though his average steadily declined from those heights later on. I had no real issue with him losing the captaincy after the '01 whitewash in Australia, but I thought the ending of his international career at the same time seemed pretty harsh.

    Didn't his decline have a lot to do with that horrific facial injury whilst touring England (I think)?

    Blow to the head.and he was never the same.

    I think he was tactically good enough to be a successful captain, but I think he cracked under the pressure in a mental sense. That in itself was surprising, because Adams was always very strong mentally before that episode. Probably shows how difficult it is to captain the West Indies team.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
