I’m not 100% sure about those 3! My guess is Boyce is in the back row directly behind Lloyd and those two guys are Walcott and Julien! lol lol

I’m pretty much certain that I saw Dukes as well..he’s the geriatric looking dude in the 3rd row looking worse for wear

Casper 2023-09-22 11:59:09 

In reply to StumpCam

Walcott is at Lloyd’s right.

FanAttick 2023-09-22 12:00:48 

In reply to Casper

Foster is the last person in the back row directly over Lloyd’s left shoulder

Kallicharran is in the 2nd row..4th from right

Wasn’t it Dukes who said he was in the stands watching Headley batting in the 1929 series?

StumpCam 2023-09-22 12:03:36 

In reply to FanAttick

Casper 2023-09-22 12:03:38

In reply to Castled

Collis King was not a part of the 1975 World Cup Squad..Vanburn Holder was not a part of the 1979 World Cup Squad..

As a brethren once told me - ”I’ve only been wrong once in my life and that is when I thought that I was wrong! lol

Raggs 2023-09-22 18:21:12 

One person of interest to me would be Maurice Churchill Foster, was he or not in the winning World Cup squad of 1975 ?

doosra 2023-09-22 18:22:50 

In reply to Raggs

Google is a good friend, sometimes

The West Indies squad for 1975 World Cup: Clive Lloyd (captain), Keith Boyce, Roy Fredericks, Maurice Foster, Lance Gibbs, Gordon Greenidge, Vanburn Holder, Bernard Julien, Alvin Kallicharran, Rohan Kanhai, Collis King, Deryck Murray, Andy Roberts, Vivian Richards and Clyde Walcott (manager).

Raggs 2023-09-22 18:31:38 

In reply to doosra

Lawrence Rowe was there rumoured

FanAttick 2023-09-22 18:45:23 

In reply to doosra

Google can be your enemy too lol

Yagga Rowe

King Collis didn't make his debut until 1976

In the fascinating world of cricket, there are often intriguing stories and unique occurrences. One such fascinating tale involves Lawrence Rowe, a talented top-order batsman from the West Indies. Rowe made his debut in One Day Internationals (ODIs) just a few months after his team’s triumph in the inaugural Cricket World Cup in 1975.

The 1975 Cricket World Cup held in England marked a historic moment for the sport. The West Indies emerged as the victors, claiming the coveted title. Amidst the talented players in the Caribbean squad was Lawrence Rowe, who played a crucial role in their success.

he asked about MF big grin big grin big grin and he got that

hubert 2023-09-22 20:13:08 

If I recall correctly, both Sobers and Rowe were initially named in the WC squad. However
both missed out as Rowe was not fully recovered from his eye problems in the previous tour
of India and Pakistan and Sobers backed out because of unfitness too.Kanhai was named as Sobers replacement
and King for Rowe.
Only 12 players were used in the 5 matches..Greenidge missed the opener against Sri Lanka and Murray opened with Fredo.
When Greenidge came back for the Pakistan match Gibbs sat out for the remaining matches.
The team was basically Fredo, Greenidge, Kalli, Kanhai, Viv, Lloyd,Murray, Julien,Boyce,Holder and Roberts
Neither Foster not King got a game.

Foster looks like he is in the left side of the photo in the back squeezed between a tall fellow with someone looking like Greg Chappell close to his left.
I could not find Julien in this photo.

In reply to hubert

Thanks Hubie…boy yuh have a photographic memory… I remember Yagga being named in the squad but didnt remember why he didn’t playlol
Who are the two peeps behind (and between) the Queen and the Duke? My guess players from Sri Lanka and East Africa…

hubert 2023-09-22 20:31:22 

In reply to FanAttick

Your guess maybe spot on. The East African team was made up of blacks and Indians from Kenya,Uganda,Zambia and Tanzania.

( the ICC wanted to create another West Indies model....was a bad idea. never lasted. Kenya
became a major player a few years later. smile )
