And Monte Morris during his last tour has gone to the top of the list of total competitive international wickets at 109 wickets from 57 matches; overtaking Errol Sorzano (107 wickets from 56 matches).
Great stat Buster, I'll collate the joint stats at some point. Monte has been an incredible bowler for the Windies! Impressive that Stanley Skepple managed 98 OD wickets yet only 7 T20 wickets also! You'd think with 98 OD he'd be top of the overall.
There is a reason for that. Tours have evolved. Initially (from memory and this may not be quite right), there was a series of matches against one nation over a week (like test tours) and these were only OD tours and OD World Cups. I think it then changed in season 11 to leagues. So those bowlers that played in seasons 4-10 only played OD. The WC tournaments were for 18 teams rather than 12.

Skepple played a lot of OD matches and very few T20s.

Oh I see, that makes a lot of sense. Interesting to hear how the game has developed and changed over time! The tours would have been interesting, maybe could arrange over a number of weeks a tour against another nation. A best of 3 or 5 or something!

One thing that I find suprising is the number of teams that have won the senior double. I make it 8 teams with some winning it more than once.

Good work putting this together, it's nice to see the history of the West Indies all in one place, definitely brings back a few memories.
Given a few years, hopefully I can make it back to the top to compete.

Good to have so many old players back, one of the things that made me want to put it together is that as a new player I didn't know much of the FTP history of the West Indies. It was interesting to go through and see some names that have moved on, but also a lot of names that are still around and helping out in various capacities.

Good luck getting back up to the top! I'll gradually make my way up, hopefully one day I can get myself on there!

Maddog40 and team meet Buster's expectations with a YOD World Cup victory, and then the Seniors have somehow managed to win the T20 World Cup in the same day! What a day and what a season for the Windies!

Whilst this doesn't really fit with the Hall of Fame, I thought I'd capture the top of the T20 World Rankings
