Ramnaresh Sarwan is one of the strong players of the West Indies Cricket team. After his first Test innings, 84 not out against Pakistan; Ted Dexter was moved to foresee a Test average of more than 50 and during his first tour, to England in 2000, Sarwan lived up to the hype by topping the averages. It was a shock when he produced a horror run of three runs in five innings in Australia. Sarwan, took over as Brian Lara’s vice-captain in March 2003, and required 28 matches and 49 innings to post his maiden Test century, 119 in December 2002. Since then his batting has achieved a greater level of consistency. His best performance came in the series against South Africa in 2003-04, where he averaged nearly a 100 runs a Test, was followed by a lean run against England. Swan also played a big hand in playing the tournaments like Natwest Series and the ICC championships Trophy.
