COLLIS KING

Collis King used the biggest stage in the game to advertise his explosive power. It was in the 1979 World Cup final at Lord's where he was at his devastating best, plundering 86 off 66 balls against hapless England. It was so awesome that it overshadowed Viv Richards' century. It was a pity that King could not repeat such brilliance, although he did score a Test century in New Zealand less than a year later. His decision to join Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket and then to tour South Africa in 1982/1983, ended his Test playing career. He also played professionally for Glamorgan and Worcestershire in England and Natal in South Africa.
