The foundation of the all-conquering West Indies team that dominated cricket during my childhood, going undefeated in Test series from 1980 through 1994, was their production line of fast bowlers capable of maiming a batter at any given moment. The greatest of them all was Malcolm Marshall, the most devastating in short spells was Curtly Ambrose, but the fastest of them all might have been Jamaica’s Michael Holding, whose bowling delivery had a short, casual light-footed run-up, which stood in contrast to the long-striding speedy approach of most fast bowlers, and served to give him one of the great nicknames in sport.
