Rohan Kanhai: Unique sweep that felled everything in sight

Kanhai, Rohan B

Born : 26 December 1935 at Port Mourant, Berbice, Guyana
Rohan Kanhai was a flamboyant stroke-maker with a penchant for the unorthodox. His 'falling over' hook shot was the most famous example of this.

His best Test score of 256 came against India at Calcutta in 1958/59. He played county cricket with much success for Warwickshire from 1968 to 1977. He set a then world record for the 2nd wicket in first-class cricket of 465* with John Jameson for Warwickshire against Gloucestershire at Birmingham in 1974. He also appeared in domestic first-class cricket in Australia and South Africa.

In his early career he was a part-time wicket-keeper. He captained West Indies 13 times in Tests. He was West Indies coach between 1992 and 1995.
