Jerome Taylor

Jerome Taylor was call up by The 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. Taylor has played only 31 first-class matches, averaging an impressive 23.13 runs for each of his 78 wickets. 

Injuries kept him out of the test side over the last year. Taylor regained his place in the side to tour New Zealand in February 2006 where he was also side line by injury.  Now fully fit Taylor was able to regain his place in the West Indies team for the 2006 home series.

Taylor has been air-mark  as one of the  heirs to the Caribbean fast bowling dynasty. His pace and his first 5 wicket haul at Sabina park in the 2006 Digicel home series against India confirms the quality of this young fast bowler.

Taylor bowling form in recent times has shown a lot of maturity he appears to be fitter and stronger, this should be his World Cup.
