Andy Roberts



Full name Anderson Montgomery Everton Roberts
Born January 29, 1951, Urlings Village, Antigua
Current age 57 years 356 days
Major teams West Indies, Combined Islands, Hampshire, Leeward Islands, Leicestershire, New South Wales
Batting style Right-hand bat
Bowling style Right-arm fast


Deadpan and deadly. Wicket or boundary, not a flicker of emotion would be evident save a gunslinger's narrowing of the eyes. Andy Roberts kept his emotions in check. But under the veneer was an intelligent cricketer with a fertile brain, plotting and planning the downfall of batsmen as if it were a military campaign. The modern West Indian game based on the heavy artillery of fast bowlers, that served so well for a quarter of a century, began with him. Here was a bowler whose pace came from timing, with power from a huge pair of shoulders. His bouncer was regarded as one of the most dangerous. He varied its pace, often setting batsmen up with a slower one and then poleaxing them when they were late on the quickie.
It took Roberts less than two and a half years to reach 100 Test wickets, the quickest at that point, and his best years were unquestionably in the middle 1970s, before the Packer revolution. Later he became jaded, and the edge went from his pace, although his experience and ability to move the ball kept him in Test cricket until 1983-84.

I wish it'd lasted forever,
but I know better
first love is first love
it ends, life goes on.

The first time of everything
the first 'hug',
the first 'kiss',
the late night 'talks',
O yea! and the late night 'walks
but it ends
oh well life goes on!

It may be hard,
but it ain't impossible,
so get over it!
and yea....move on!
