West Indies Team Profiles

  • Brenton 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.
  • Chris 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.
  • Daren Powell - is a slimly built right arm fast bowler with slippery pace and outswing he made his debuted for the West Indies in 2002 against New Zealand. 
  • Darren 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.
  • Denesh Ramdin - Is a young wicketkeeper-batsman of tremendous potential. The 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. 
  • Devon 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.
  • Dwayne 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.
  • Fidel 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 cricket in spectacular fashion, by captain, Brian Lara, who plucked him from obscurity after facing in a net session in 2003.

  • Ramnaresh 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 years old.
  • Ravi Rampaul- has impressed everyone at the junior levels. Altough he has played 30 One Day Internationals he is yet to make his Test debut. His speed and and Un-erring accuracy will be tremendous asset to the West Indies cricket team once he can maintain his fitness.
