profile

 revives your memories of the eighties and the early nineties; a time which saw tear away West Indian bowlers sending shivers down opposition batsmen’s spines through their sheer pace. The young Barbadian though, still not of that ilk regularly clocks 150kph and is more than capable of hurrying through batsman.

Roach represented West Indies in the 2006 Under-19 WC and after playing just four first-class matches, was selected in the national squad to face Australia. He was handed his T20 debut during the same tour and was impressive with figures of 2-29 in his maiden game. He later made his ODI debut against Bermuda, before he got his lucky break in Tests when West Indies fielded an under strength side against Bangladesh. The tour of Australia enhanced his reputation where he was easily one of West Indies’ best bowlers, even forcing Ricky Ponting to retire hurt in the third and final Test.

The youngster generally gets the ball to skid off the surface with the extra yard of pace being his element of surprise. West Indies have unearthed a gem in Roach and if nurtured, he could one day become one of their premier bowlers.
