Former West Indies captain Rohan Kanhai, considered to be one of the best batsmen of the 1960s, was born on 26 December 1935 at Port Mourant, British Guiana. Kanhai scored 6,227
runs in 79 Tests at an average of 47.53, with his highest score of 256 coming against India in a Test at Calcutta. When Kanhai retired, his batting average was the fifth-highest of all West Indian cricketers with more than 20 Tests. In the 1975 World Cup final, when he was 39, his steady half-century set the platform for an explosive innings by Clive Lloyd as West Indies were crowned champions.
