Just found this. Dunno how?? But an interesting snippet from the Windies tour here in 1975/76...some brilliant cricketers amongst that lot

Great get there,Ben.

Will have a better look later,as I’m just waking up,but seeing their arrival on a lousy Adelaide day,to be greeted by The Don,I found fascinating.

Noticed Clive(Lloyd),Lance Gibbs,Dereck Murray and Alvin Kallicharan in interviews.

I think I’d better watch this on a bigger screen,but what was the practice match they were playing,with none other than Dennis(Lillee)pounding down the wicket,sending bouncers over Helmetless batsman,possibly Alvin?

A most Appalling Wicket.

Abandoning that Test and sooner was the only right course of action.
