In any other team in any other era, Gordon Greenidge would have been the top dog.  He just had the (mis) fortune to play in the same team with a certain Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards.

Starting off facing Lillee and Thommo, Greenidge finished on the cusp of 40 against a new generation of champion Aussie quicks.  After a long hiatus, the Twist is back to celebrate an iconic late career innings from this most destructive batsman, a true fan favourite.   

For us three 40+ yos a reminder that there is often life left in the old dog.

This week's scorecard:
4th Test, Bridgetown, Apr 20 - 24 1991, Australia tour of West Indies

And some video highlights:
Gordon Greenidge 226 versus Australia
