I am unaware of Julien openıng an inning for the WI in a Test match. Prove it.

Haynes and Grennide were Bajans not Trini.
V Stollmeyer played one test and didn't open.
Gabriel never played Test cricket.

Michael J, you right about Julien, second TEst 1976 tour of Aus.

Please prove your point about DR, Murray and Lara.

In addition you have three more names to go. (This is a slightly trick question).

Correction, only two more names to go. I thought R Holder (born in TT) was an opening bat for the WI. Looked like I was wrong.

D. Ramdin   (Opened just once.   2007/08 away series against S. Africa . 2nd test, 2nd innings @ Newlands)

Never heard of that Furlonge either. Just goes to show, you don't know everything about TT.
