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

    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.

    No openers...?
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

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