Writing a biography of someone who has been dead over 50 years is challenging. The people with first-hand memories are aged, with faulty memories (if they can dredge them up), infirm, or worse, dying just before you get to them. So when I was told I should talk to Lance Gibbs to get his stories about Sir Frank Worrell, I decided to track him down in Florida, where he has lived for several years, following his retirement from Test cricket in 1976.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

"No, no, no, because of Ram [Sonny Ramadhin] and Val [Alf Valentine]. They were the senior spin bowlers.
But Ramadhin he would go out and look at wickets and if the wicket didn't look as if it was going to turn
he used to complain a lot.
Val wouldn't say much, but Ram was a moaner."

He went knocking at the door of two of the players who were rooming together.
He was greeted by a sight he has not forgotten.

"Young man, what you've seen in here, do not disclose," he was told.

"They sleeping naked!" He guffaws.

"Naked! I say
