The prolific run-getter from the West Indies made just one tour of India in 1948-49 but that was enough for him to amass 779 runs in the five Tests at an average of 111.28.
This amazing run included four hundreds on the trot including a century in each innings in the Calcutta Test followed by 90 (run out) at Madras.
Before coming over to India Weekes had hit a century against England and his record of five consecutive hundreds still stands.
Weekes had not finished with torturing the Indian bowlers though: when the Indians paid a return visit to the Caribbean in 1953 he had a tally of 716 runs in the five Tests with a double hundred and two centuries!
