GEOFF GREENIDGE

Geoff Greenidge burst onto the first-class scene in sensational fashion, scoring a double century and grabbing a seven-wicket haul against the Leeward Islands at Kensington Oval in 1967. But he didn't play his first Test match until 1972 against New Zealand at Georgetown, Guyana, a debut which he marked with a half-century. He lost form after his first series and subsequently lost his place. Greenidge also played in the English county championship for Sussex for more than five seasons. He played a total of 122 first-class matches, scoring 9,112 runs, which included 16 centuries and 45 fifties. Greenidge was the centre of a controversy when the Guyanese government refused to allow him to play in the Shell Shield match in 1976 because he had visited Rhodesia the previous year with an international team.
