Kemar Roach: Career, Stats, Lifestyle, Bio…

Kemar Roach brought in fresh air into the West Indies team as they finally got a young fast bowler who could unleash thunderbolts. Though he was initially picked at the age of 19 in 2008, he could only make his Test debut against Bangladesh in 2009, when all the major West Indies players were out due to a dispute with the board. However, even when they returned, Roach stayed on and became a crucial part of their side. In a land where fast bowling talent has been dwindling alarmingly over the last decade, Kemar Roach is perhaps the brightest hope. At well under six feet, he doesn’t have the height of some of the earlier West Indian greats, but he has extreme pace, consistently touching the late 140s (kph), and can skid on to batsmen quicker than they realize.

Therefore, let’s dig into the life of Kemar Roach to know about his career, stats, lifestyle, bio, and more

Kemar Roach: Career Highlights

Kemar Roach burst into international cricket with 13 wickets in his first two Tests against Bangladesh, but made his name on the tour of Australia in 2009-10. Consistently bowling at around 150kph, he hurried most of the Australian batsmen and made the headlines in the Perth Test, forcing Ricky Ponting to retire hurt after hitting him on the elbow with a pacy 146kph delivery. In the 2010 IPL auction, he was bought by Deccan Chargers for a healthy sum of $720,000, but it’s in the longer format that he holds the greatest promise, a fact that was confirmed by his ten-wicket haul in two Tests in Sri Lanka in 2010-11. He picked up his maiden ten-wicket haul in Tests in 2012 against Australia in Trinidad.

In the West Indies’ second game of the 2011 World Cup against the Netherlands on 28 February, Roach became the sixth bowler to have claimed a hat-trick in the history of the showpiece event. Roach claimed a six-wicket haul in West Indies’s massive win by 215 runs. In the cricket season of 2010/11, when West Indies were touring in Sri Lanka, Roach was the leading wicket-taker in the series despite playing on pitches that weren’t best suited to fast bowlers.
