Real Captain with bat and ball performances and command respect from team members, he was not captain only on paper, like some recent ones.

Clive's birthday was since August 31st.I saw him in New York last Sunday but he did not see me.What many people do not realize is that in his 74 tests as captain he scored a mere 346 runs less than Viv when they played together.Clive averaged 51.30 and Viv 53.64.Viv was dismissed 104 times and Clive 102 times.
