    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Dont know what that means, but here goes.
    t1) George Headley
    t1) Garfueld Sobers
    t1) I.V.A. Richards
    t1) Brian Lara

    5)Everton Weekes
    6)Rohan Khanai
    7)Clyde Walcott
    8)Gordon Greenidge
    9)Frank Worrell
    10)Clive LLoyd

    Clyde Walcott is really under rated by some, by the guy scored 4 hundreds vs Lindwall and Miller and was by accounts a very good keeper, especially to spin, and even opened the bowling for the West Indies.

    Top floor, bottom buzzer
    No openers...?
    Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
    If I run I can free my worried mind
    Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
    But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

    Yes, that is a little surprising that Greenide was excluded.
