Runako Morton

Runako Morton, is a tall right-handed middle order batsman, he has had a challenging time in his brief international cricketing career but has recently been making significant strides as he makes a come back. Morton was initially called to West Indies senior duty for the ICC Champions Trophy in September in 2002. He struggled to maintain the required level of discipline and found himself on the sidelines. But Morton has shown lots of maturity as he has fought his way back into the West Indies squad

Morton has always been fairly consistent in regional first class competition playing for the Leewards, 2005 was no different he scored over 500 runs at just over an average of 30 with two centuries and two half centuries. The 2005 tour of Sri Lanka was face with industrial action between WIPA and WICB with a number of senior players withdrawing their services Morton made his Test debut.

Morton was impressive on the Sri Lankan tour and was then picked for the 2005-06 tour to New Zealand, where he proved his worth with a fighting century, his maiden one-day hundred - in a losing cause.
