View Full Version : WI Pacer Watch

October 6, 2017, 09:27 AM
WI have a long line of seriously good pacers, they've been a bit lacklustre in recent years for the most part but they seem to have some good talent coming through all at once and close to the same age.

Oshane Thomas
Odean Smith
Keon Harding
Kemar Holder
Shakeem Clarke
Alzarri Joseph
Ronsford Beaton
Reynard Leveridge

Most are around 19-21, Beaton and leveridge are older. Heard that most of these guys are quite rapid to, maybe WI fast bowling will make a resurgence with this group of young men!

Which of these bowlers were in the U-19 WC winning team?

I know Joseph was there. Who else?

Think chemar holder was as well.

Ray Jordan was also promising, not sure where he's been the last couple of years. They also had jofra archer who did play u19s for WI but he's almost qualified for England now.

Ok looks like odean smith was part of that WC squad, also the pace allrounder kemo paul. Obed mccoy was there as well.

Springer also is a pacer, but more of a batting all rounder.

Yeah Keemo Paul is more of a batting allrounder than a bowling one.

I have him in my team on Cricket Captain 17.
Won be some First Class games with both bay and ball.

Apparently shakeem Clarke went on a 3 month program to South Africa last year, chemar holder this year will apparently come to Australia for 3 months. Both are really good prospects, oshane and leveridge are in the squad for the next A team series so hopefully these experiences will help these guys and windies cricket come out of the trough they are in. Hopefully shai hopes heroics in the England test series are just the start.

Sunil Ambris with a half century.

I'm more interested in our pacers.

And as far as I can tell oshane isn't playing, wanted to see what he could do.
