Indies Team Profiles
Parchment - Is a right hand batsman and who has captain the
West Indies Cricket team on their 2001 under 19 tour to England. Now at the
start of his international career much is expected of him as the
Windies try to rebuild to their former glory.
Gayle - is an exceptionally powerful
striker of the cricket ball, especially off the back foot.
Gayle has been the West Indies #1 opening batsman for the past four
years. Tall and broad shoulder his imposing nature at the crease has
led many West Indies fans to compare him with former West
Indies Cricket team captain Clive Lloyd.
Powell - is a slimly built right arm fast bowler
slippery pace and outswing he made his debuted for the West Indies in
2002 against New Zealand.
Sammy - is the main cheerleader in this current crop
of West Indian cricketers. The tall alrounder brings a level of
commitment to the West Indies that is often missing at crunch
time. Weather batting, bowling or fielding his enthusiasm is a breath
of fresh air.
Is a young wicketkeeper-batsman of tremendous
wicket-keeping position in the West Indies team has been a game of
musical cheers since Jeffrey Dujon played the last of his 81 Test in
1991. Many in the Caribbean see Denesh Ramdin as the long-term solution
to the void left by Jeff Dujon, as well as a future captain of the West
Indies Cricket team.
Smith - has had lots of success at regional level
playing for the Windward islands. Often compared
with the former West Indies opener the late Roy Fredericks, Smith
inconsitency has seen him in and out of the West Indies team in recent
times. It is hope that he can regain his run scoring form to help add
stability to the opening partnership.
Bravo - is
developing into a genuine all-rounder, Bravo is expected to play a
significant role as the West Indies attempt to return to international
cricket prominence. Bravo is an exciting right-handed batsman and
right-arm medium-fast bowler who has already become one of the West
Indies' more reliable one-day bowlers, able to contain batsman towards
the end of the innings.
Edwards - Is that special bowling talent West Indies
cricket so badly needs. Short in stature, with a slinging arm action
Edwards generates genuine pace from a bustling run
to the crease. Fidel Edwards was first introduced to Test

from obscurity after facing in a net session in 2003.

West Indies Cricket selectors to replace Mervyn Dillon in the West
Indies 15-man squad to face Sri Lanka in the 3rd and final Cable
& Wireless One-Day International in St. Vincent and
the Grenadines on June 11, 2003. Just 18 years old at that time Jerome
Taylor was already named the most promising fast bowler in the 2003
Carib Beer series.
Sarwan - Is an exceptionally talented batsman, with
wristy strokes and nimble foot work. His cricket ability was recognised
by both West Indies cricket officials and fans at an early age.
Sarwan became the youngest regional first-class player ever
with a first class debut against Barbados when he was just 15
Rampaul- has impressed everyone at the junior levels. Altough

debut. His speed and and Un-erring accuracy will be tremendous
asset to the West Indies cricket team once he can maintain his fitness.
