    Great piece, and a great tribute to a great man. As a batsman not quite in the Headley, Sobers, Richards and Lara, But with the tremainder of the 3W's and Kanhai takes a place just a hair below and all true ATG's in the truest meaning of the term.
    I enjoyed the series, and thanks to all concerned.

    It wasn't mentioned but Weekes was also a superb ATG slip who was rated by those who saw him as the equal to Hammond, particularily to spin.
