Cameron Eustace Cuffy (born February 8, 1970) is a former West Indian cricketer, who was often likened to Joel Garner and Curtly Ambrose. 6-foot 8 inches tall, he seemed to deliver the ball from the clouds. But there the comparisons ended with his famous predecessors.
He made his Test debut against India in 1994 but was totally ineffective on the slow pitches there. It was a surreal sight watching a giant fast bowler being hit around the park, not being able to make much of an impression on the Indian batsmen. He did however make somewhat of an impression on Sachin Tendulkar, dismissing him 3 times in his Test career.
He was in and out of both the Test and one-day teams in the 1990s and after 2000, his international career was over. As a batsman, he was a genuine rabbit, averaging 4.14 in Test cricket.
Cameron Cuffy has the distinction of winning a man of the match award in a One Day International without scoring a run, taking a wicket or holding a catch. Playing against Zimbabwe at Harare in the opening fixture of a Coca Cola Cup tournament on 23 June 2001 he won the match award for his analysis of 10-2-20-0. As the hosts managed only 239 for 9 in reply to 266 for 5 by West Indies, Cuffy's economy was crucial. No other bowler in the match conceded fewer than 35 runs from his full 10-over entitlement.
