Runako Morton is a talented and fiery player of the West Indies Cricket team. His career started on the wrong foot when he was expelled from the West Indian Academy in July 2001, for a series of regulation breaches. In February 2002, his penance complete, he was called as a replacement for Marlon Samuels, and became one of the few Test cricketers from tiny island of Nevis. But even this opportunity proved futile when he was pulled out of the ICC Champions Trophy in September 2002, after lying about the death of his grandmother. His career slipped further down the pan when he was arrested in January 2004, following a stabbing incident. But alas he was given another opportunity and was 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.
