TEAMS

Geoff Greenidge exploded onto the scene when he smashed 205 on his debut as an opener for Barbados against the Leeward Islands in 1966-67, and grabbed 7 for 124 with his legspin in the Leeward's first innings for good measure. He made his Test debut against New Zealand at Georgetown in 1971-72, scoring 50 and 35*, following up with 38 and 21 in the final Test of the series at Port-of-Spain. But the following winter he struggled to maintain his form against Australia and was dropped. He continued to play with success for Barbados and, between 1968 and 1975, with mixed fortunes for Sussex. In 1976 he was at the centre of a massive row when the Guyanese government cancelled the Shell Shield match with Barbados because Greenidge had visited Rhodesia with an international side the previous winter. Barbados refused to back down and returned home.
