Shane Warne picks his all time West Indies XI: The West Indies cricket team is currently touring Australia and is facing real heat Down Under. The Caribbean side, that was once considered to be the most dominant side of world cricket, has not been anywhere close to its prime in the recent times. They have been struggling in both home and away games. Although the team has not struck form, they have certainly not lost out on popularity. The legendary former leg-spinner from Australia, Shane Warne, recently picked up his all-time West Indies XI, picking up some of the greats of the game from the Caribbean Islands.
One of the most feared opening batsmen, Gordon Greenidge played 108 Tests and 128 ODIs for the West Indies team. Greenidge, who has 19 Test centuries to his name, is best remembered for his batting exploits with his opening partner, Desmond Haynes. The pair has 6482 runs to their name, the highest total for a batting partnership in Test history. Not a very regular bowler, Greenidge has a five-for to his name too in ODIs. A thorough legend of the game who was instrumental in West Indies’ 5-0 whitewash against England in 1984 with back to back double centuries, Greenidge is a certain inclusion in every West Indies all-time XI.
