Whether it was the anxiety variable, his ability or both, Croft had a flair of taking gates on a regular basis. His strike price of 47.36 is amongst the most effective for a West Indies bowler.

It was not simply the runs he racked up, however just how he scored them which done Alvin Kallicharran among the much more interesting Guyanese batsmen to bet the Indies. After making his launching in April 1972, Kallicharran played 66 Examinations as well as racked up 4,399 at approximately 44.43. He racked up 12 centuries with his greatest rating, 187 versus India.

Carl Hooper

For several years and also very early 1990s, the much-maligned Hooper was the only Guyanese that included on a regular basis in the West Indies group. While his document might appropriately be called typical, it still recommends that he is just one of the most effective overall cricketers ever before generated by Indies. In 102 Examinations, he racked up 5,762 go for approximately 36.46; his greatest rating was 233 versus India in 2002. He likewise took 114 arches with his off-spin.

Hooper, throughout his occupation, was likewise a beneficial participant of the West Indies group in 50-over cricket, racking up over 5,761 perform at approximately 35.34 and also recording 193 arches.

After his abrupt retired life from the video game in 1999, Hooper returned in 2002 to captain the West Indies. While he just led the group to triumph in 4 of the 23 suits played while he went to the helm, the additional duty appeared to boost his efficiency on the area, given that throughout this duration he balanced closer to 50 runs per innings.

In an Examination job which covered 22 years, Chanderpaul played 164 suits, racked up 11,867 go for an exceptional standard of 51.37. He additionally racked up 30 centuries, one of the most by a Guyanese batsman in Examination cricket. His document in minimal overs cricket is likewise superior. In 268 ODIs, he racked up 8,778 runs approximately 41.60 with 11 centuries. He additionally has the highest possible ODI rating for a Guyanese cricketer– 150 versus South Africa.
