A very underrated but a magnificent player of pace and spin and some useful off spin bowling.. Love this player and his batting style! Not to forget his excellent fielding— Abhishek Risbud (@EMGwindow) December 15, 2019
Griffith with Hall, Gibbs etc helped WI win the series 5-0 vs India in 1962. Nari Contractor was hurt by a Griffith bouncer and never played for India again. Incidentally, like a few Indian captains, Contractor has one test wicket!— Ashutosh Sinha (@AshutoshSinha00) December 15, 2019

He should have scored 10k runs in both Tests & ODIs. Still my favorite WI player of that era.
I copied his bowling action when in school. Whenever I play now, I bowl Hooper off breaks.— The-Hydrated (@surg982) December 15, 2019
Some of the 💯's that he scored in Australia during the WSC's were just brilliant to watch.— Moinak Das (@d_moinak) December 15, 2019
Yeah, calm but deadly.. specially those drifters. The 90s WI team had some amazing characters. Happy Birthday Mr. Hooper!— The-Hydrated (@surg982) December 15, 2019
Happy Birthday... one of the slowest & Stylish Offee & Class Batsman— Vijay Tiwari (@VijayTiwari9) December 15, 2019
So beautiful to hear that. I used to do that too. One of the first off spinners I watched live on TV back then.— Kartik Kannan (@kartik_kannan) December 15, 2019
