I was there in 1979 at Lord’s — in that crowd.

I was among the first wave of those that hit the field.

That is, of course, Clive holding the cup
with my buddies Gordon and Viv in the foreground.


To say that he was one of my idols in the 1970s and early 1980s would be quite the understatement.

In my eyes Clive could do little wrong. Those were THE GLORY days of West Indies cricket and I was so lucky to see a fair bit of it live.

Clive was a gentleman. Polished and dignified. I think he was one of the greatest cricket captains ever though he was blessed to have exceptional talent in his teams.

Happy birthday Clive. You will always be a GREAT.
