Viv Richards




When it comes to legends of cricket, and sport in general, Sir Viv is at the top of the game. Captaining the West Indies through the most successful run in their 120-year Test history, he remains one of only four non-English cricketers to have scored 100 first-class centuries and was voted Wisden Cricketers’ greatest ODI batsman of all time.
