Pitting a world West Indies test XI from era of Clive Lloyd's captaincy in 1975 to Viv Richards in 1991.


My joint India-Pakistan XI  of  1970s to 1980s to play West Indies XI of that era


Sunil Gavaskar

Majid Khan

Javed Miandad

Gundappa Vishwanath

Mohinder Amarnath

Mushtaq Muhammad

Kapil Dev

Imran Khan (W)

Wasim Akram

Abdul Qadir

Wasim Bari (W)


In sub-continent conditions I would select Bishen Bedi instead of Wasim Akram of that time and Dilip Vengsarkar instead of Mohinder Amarnath.


On fast Australian tracks or some in the Carribean I would back West Indies XI.However on seaming English tops I would give Indo-Pak XI  the marginal edge.On flat pancakes  Indo-Pak XI would be favourites in my view.Indo-Pak XI is more talented but the Calypsos have more match winners like Viv ,Greenidge or Marshall.Indo-Pak XI has more variety in bowling,genuine allrounders unlike their counterparts and more batting depth.Still it is the Calypsos who ae more explosive in batting and bowling.



West Indies XI -1975-91



Viv Richards


Lloyd (C)

Lawrence Rowe

Dujon (W)

There was no one in Indian or Pakistan team who could play Andy Roberts or a bowler who could bowl Richards or Llyod out consistently.


WI >>>> Ind + Pak + anyone else.
