Profile

Alvin Greenidge - no relation to Gordon - was a tall opening batsman for Barbados came to the attention of the selectors in 1977-78 when he scored well and was drafted into the West Indies side against Australia that season following the defection of many leading players to World Series Cricket. He scored a half-century on his debut in the third Test at Georgetown, and another in fourth Test at Port-of-Spain. He was picked for the tour of India in 1978-79 but struggled for form, and when the Packer rebels returned he was discarded. He had one more glimpse of the big time in 1980 when he was summoned from Holland - where he played club cricket - to field for the injury-hit West Indies at The Oval. Greenidge continued to score prolifically for Barbados without ever coming close to selection again, and his career ended when he toured South Africa with a rebel West Indies side in 1982-83. He subsequently became a junior coach in Barbados. .
