Description:
Carl Llewellyn Hooper (born December 15, 1966 in Georgetown, Guyana) is a former West Indian cricket player and captain.

Career

He was a right-handed batsman and off-spin bowler, who came to prominence in the late 1980s in a side that included such players as Gordon Greenidge, Desmond Haynes, Malcolm Marshall and Courtney Walsh and represented the West Indies over a 21-year international career.

His highest innings score of 233 was made during a Test series in India in 2001. He has made 5,762 runs in his Test cricket career. Hooper could be an erratic Test batsman, as his lower average of 36.46 over 102 Tests shows. In ODI play, Hooper's aggressive style of batting fared better: he averaged 35.34 off 227 matches.

Hooper represented Guyana at local first-class level, and played English county cricket for Kent and Lancashire. In 2003, Hooper became only the second player to have scored a century against all 18 county teams.

Hooper holds the accolade of being the first cricketer in the world to have scored 5,000 runs, taken 100 wickets, held 100 catches and received 100 caps in both ODIs and Tests, a feat only matched since by Jacques Kallis.
