Since the untimely death of Malcolm Marshall from colon cancer in Barbados
at the young age of 41, I have supported Bowel cancer charities as my chosen
Malcom played for the West Indies from 1976 to 1991 and held the record
as its leading wicket taker, at 376, until Courtney Walsh passed the mark
in November 1998.
He also took 157 wickets in one-day internationals, and more than 800 for
his English county side, Hampshire.
Malcolm was one of the world's greatest fast bowlers, a great thinker and
a well-balanced individual who gave his best whether batting or bowling.
