12 Caribbean nations have supplied Windies test cricketers. For nearly 30 years, until 1956, the big 4 (Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana) dominated, but in the last 20 years 1 in 5 Windies debutants has been from the smaller nations.

In the 80+ year history of Windies test cricket, Trinidad's contribution has declined the most - anyone know why?

Were there fine cricketers from the smaller nations overlooked in the past? Who were they?

A full analysis is on my blog, Declaration Game,
