The cricketer 'Viv' Richards, born in Antigua, was a prolific batsman and charismatic captain of the West Indian test side. He began his first class career in 1972 and two years later qualified for Somerset. He played for the county until the controversial ending of his contract in 1986. In 1976 his test aggregate of 1,710 runs at an average of 90 set a record. He is seen in this portrait at the crease.
