Geoffrey Alan "Geoff" Greenidge (born 26 May 1948, Fontabelle, St Michael, Barbados) is a former West Indian cricketer who played in five Tests from 1972 to 1973. His international career ended abruptly when he took part in a tour of Rhodesia, which was then under white minority rule.[1]

Greenidge was the last white player to play for West Indies. For a time, it was believed that Brendan Nash had taken this distinction in 2008, but Nash was later revealed to be of mixed race.[2]
