I remember him stepping across his stumps to blast Botham's outswingers through midwicket. Best batter I ever saw.
I remember watching him Live in Gujranwala stadium, hitting Qadir for big a six and the ball fell on the top of the tent and rolled back into the stadium,
By witnessing what he did to the great bowlers of the past era, i cant imagine what the poor turndlers of today would have received from him,
one of the true legends of the game, not only for his skill, but the spirit and style with which he played.

I know many won't agree but for me Viv remains the greatest cricketer. Talent, skill, power, heart, this guy had it all.

Happy Birthday Sir!
Spot on with the description on the gum chewing and the swagger. To me he looked more like a gladiator(without a helmet or an armor) than a cricketer.

Long live Sir King Viv :)
a belated happy birthday to the best batsman i have had the pleasure of watching

king viv
Arguably the greatest batsman of the modern era
Happy Birthday , Viv

Happy 63rd Birthday, 'King' Viv. Will admit, found about our all dearest King's Birthday by looking at Sachin's post on his official FB page.

Jon Farriss has released a song dedicated to the 'King' on his 63rd Birtday, here it is -

Take a bow, everyone!!!!
The 2 greatest cricketing geniuses from the 20th century -


Sir Garfield Sobers and Sir Viv Richards.
No one who saw him bat could consider anyone else in his league. Easily the GOAT.
What a guy!

Coolest cricketer ever! Even now!
