    Well, Chandrashekhar did not play that test, I think. If I remember
  correctly, Richards never understood Chandra's googly in that series.
  I don't think he did so well in the last 3 tests.

    Did Kanhai played in that series ?   He had retired from test cricket
  by that time. He did play in the 1975 world cup in England, though.
  BTW, you forgot Alvin Kallicharan and... Jesus-I-forgot-his-name,
  the first 300 wkt spinner.. Another big name was Lawrence Rowe, the
  opener who had showed so much promise earler on, but faded away later.
  Wasn't Keith Boyce also in that team ?

  J.K.        (Please, somebody tell me that bowler's name.)
