I can imagine it goes something like this

I worked down pit for 73 hours just in my undies and then went straight to match and bowled 87 overs in a row in my hob nail boots, modern cricketers have it easy  Very Happy

I had the pleasure of being at the 1st ODI V West Indies at OT in 84 to see Viv's legendary 189 not out. Windies batted 1st and were reduced to something like 160 for 9 as Holding came out to the middle to join Viv who at that stage was about 90 odd not out. Still remember about 3 of the sixes flying over my head as I watched on in amazement like everyone else. He made it look all so effortless as well.West Indies ended with a score of about 270 of which Viv had scored 189no. They won easily of course but what a fabulous day's cricket.
