Up and Com­ing West Indies Cricketers

Jason Holder
Jason-Holder-of-the-West-Indies-celebrates1
Age 25
6 tests, 264 runs, Ave. 29.33, 13 wick­ets, Ave. 34.46
33 ODIs, 317 runs, Ave. 22.64, 46 wick­ets, Ave. 31.93

Holder was appointed West Indies ODI Cap­tain in 2015 after Dwayne Bravo was relieved of his duties fol­low­ing the deba­cle of the Indian tour. A great all-​rounder in the mak­ing, Holder has the tal­ent and impor­tantly the men­tal strength to become a great cricketer.

Jer­maine Blackwood
Jermaine-Blackwood-Test151

Age 25
8 tests, 554 runs, Ave. 50.36

This young attack­ing Jamaican bats­man is known for his never say die atti­tude. His com­ing of age was dur­ing the series against Eng­land in April/​May of 2015 where he scored his maiden cen­tury and a bril­liant coun­ter­at­tack­ing knock of 85 helped West indies record a rare test vic­tory at Kens­ing­ton Oval. Def­i­nitely one for the future.

Kraigg Braith­waite
Kraigg Brathwaite 3280661b1
Age 24
20 tests, 1325 runs, Ave. 36.80

Churn­ing out hun­dreds since he was at Under 13 level, Kraigg didn’t have the best of starts to his test career. How­ever, he has worked hard on his game and has come back stronger than ever. Only 22 and hav­ing over 1000 runs under his belt, this level headed right-​handed bats­man will be the rock of West Indies bat­ting for years to come.


Miguel Cum­mins
Miguel Cummins
Age 26

30 first class matches, 82 wick­ets, Ave. 23.07

Hav­ing only fea­tured for the West Indies in one inter­na­tional game so far, Miguel Cum­mins is a fan­tas­tic prospect for the future. Tall and quick, his pace has unset­tled many a bats­man at regional level and once he har­nesses his tal­ent, he can become a great fast bowler for West Indies in the future.

West Indies Cricket is still admired world­wide. How­ever, it is up to the play­ers to regain that pride and pas­sion rep­re­sent­ing your nation brings, and it is also up to the board to ensure the right struc­tures, and per­son­nel are in place for us to rise to the top again. This has been the dream of the West Indies fan for over 3 decades. Time to make this dream a reality.
