    Chanderpaul should be in there, and Gayle is probably worthy of consideration too, if only for his ODI exploits.

    Not sure about Richards, if he draws Lara or one of the seamers it'd be pretty close.

    Other names:

    George Headley
    Learie Constantine
    Sonny Ramadhin
    Alf Valentine
    Richie Richardson
    Roy Gilchrist
    Jeff Dujon
    Jimmy Adams
    Basil Butcher
    Shivnarine Chanderpaul
    Lawrence Rowe
    Denis Atkinson
    Gerry Alexander
    Ridley Jacobs
    Chris Gayle
    Deryck Murray
    Dwayne Bravo
    Ramnaresh Sarwan
    Tony Gray
    Manny Martindale
    Jeff Stollmeyer

    That's 46 by my count, stretching things after Murray tho.

    EDIT: Other people had got in...

    May as well add Conrad Hunte. Probably a better opener than Haynes, in tests. Certainly better than the likes of Bravo and Ridley Jacobs.

    Why 72, BTW?

    I'd have thought 64 or 96 made more sense, battle wise.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
