DESMOND HAYNES

Desmond Haynes combined with fellow batsman Gordon Greenidge to form Test cricket's most durable opening pair. Haynes blasted 148 off Australia on his international debut in a one-day match in Trinidad and, while he was an aggressor in his early days, he settled to become a stabilising force at the top of the order. For a few years, Haynes' aggregate of runs and number of centuries were the most by a West Indian in One-Day Internationals, until those marks were surpassed by Brian Lara. Haynes played for Scotland, Middlesex in England and the Western Province in South Africa. After his playing days, Haynes coached in England for a few seasons as well as in Barbados, primarily with the Carlton Club.
