Tony Greig

As the first Test loomed, Greig was interviewed for the BBC's Sportsnight programme. Irked by a stream of newspaper articles highlighting the strength of West Indies, Greig let rip. "I'm not really sure they're as good as everyone thinks," he said. "These guys, if they get on top they are magnificent cricketers.
