Profile

Jeffrey Leroy Dujon played for the formidable West Indies team of the 1980's as the diminutive character behind the stumps, among a team of giants. Playing as the wicket-keeper with an indomitable ability to wield the willow, Dujon effected a number of dismissals to help his team reign supreme. His total tally of 270 dismissals in Test cricket is exceeded only by Mark Boucher, Adam Gilchrist, Ian Healy and Rod Marsh.

Dujon's batting capability as a lower order batsman was justified with five Test centuries, the highest of which was a brilliantly made 139 against Australia at Perth in 1984. He helped rescue his team on numerous occasions and put them back in a position of strength. The highlight of his career would have to be the fact that his team has never lost a series in which he has played. In a career combining first-class and international appearances that spanned nineteen long years, Dujon managed to pile up over 10,000 runs at an impressive average of 40 whilst also completing 447 catches and effecting 22 stumpings.

Following his retirement in 1992, he took to coaching like most other players and worked as the assistant coach of the West Indies for a brief period. He also went on to assist in the development of young cricketers in his hometown, Jamaica. Dujon then took up commentary.
