Description

Branded a 'rebel' for touring in apartheid South Africa with a West Indian XI, Franklyn Stephenson overcame domestic bans to become one of the world's finest all-rounders. Recognised as the first fast bowler to develop a cunning slower ball, the beaming Barbadian was the last to do the Double of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in an English summer.
