Wesley Winfield Hall (wes Hall) began his career as a wicket-keeper but soon switched to fast bowling, a role he could handle much more easily. He quickly emerged as the West Indies\' first great post-war fast bowler. With one of the longest run-ups in Test cricket, he bowled genuinely fast - and for very long spells throughout a day. During the Lord\'s Test of 1963 he bowled unchanged for over three hours on the final day!!
