Desmond Haynes, the second star of this story, holds the record for highest score on debut by a batsmen in one day international. Haynes, right handed opening batsman who held many record breaking stands with partner Godron Greenidge, had Ryan Austin with him on debut. Australians were the opposition and historic Antigua Recreation ground the venue.
Australia elected to field, and Haynes didn't had to wait to unleash his skills. 136 balls for his 148 runs with 16 fours and 2 sixes, Haynes mesmerized Aussie bowling comprising likes of Jeff Thompson and Boby Simpson. Haynes was 6th batsman out that day, and West Indies raised a rare score in excess of 300 in those days. 313 to be precise!
