    Who's the best West Indian Test opener in West Indian Test history?

    Taking the cue from BhupinderSingh...

    Can't look past Conrad Hunte IMO, though the best innings (and IMO probably the best innings ever by a West Indian of any batting position) was played by Fredericks here.

    Gordon Greenidge a damn close 2nd.

    Greenidge and dodgy knee and all that. Top quality player

    He overshadowed Haynes, though he himself was overshadowed by Barry Richards at Hampshire

    Ha, how has Campbell made that list & Gayle hasn't.

    BTW, Cutbert Gordon Greenidge, one of the many players from the past based on what i've seen on video that i wish could have been part of the current generation.

    Ian Chappell came close though, 156 from 0.

    Went for Greenidge, just ahead of Conrad Hunte. Fredericks and Haynes fighting it out for third spot.
