Courtney Walsh, 6'6" : The Jamaican workhorse had a remarkable career, in that he managed to remain injury-free and bowled thousands of overs each year. At the end of his 17-year-long Test career, Walsh had 519 wickets, a record. He generated steep bounce from his springy action and could move the ball both ways at brisk pace. He and Ambrose retired together in 2000. West Indies cricket was never the same again.
