SIR EVERTON WEEKES
Immortalised as one of the 3Ws, Sir Everton was knighted for his services to cricket in 1995. Like Sir Clyde and Sir Frank, he was one of the mainstays of the West Indies batting in the late 1940s and 1950s, boasting of an admirable variety of strokes. On his first tour with the West Indies – to India in 1948-49 – he scored 779 runs at 111.28 and set a world record of five successive hundreds. It would have been six were it not for a controversial run-out decision. His Test record would even have been more prolific had an injury not forced him to retire in his early 30s. He played 152 first-class matches, scoring 12,010 runs including 36 centuries, with his highest score being 304*.
