Keemo Paul seriously underrated as a batsman

That dude have better technique that half of the current WI test side. Never seen him jump to pace bowlers like Hope does either

In reply to Jumpstart Well, as a lil bai, his mom did say Keemo would cry when his dad would stop bowling to him as when it was bed time!

So far in this CPL we have seen a much improved Kemo Paul. Bowler, batter, more energized etc

I do not think so.Keemo has always been a batsman who bowls from he was playing Under 15 cricket.
Johnny Bravo only started bowling rather late in his teenage years though Keemo always bowled though he actually bowled spin initially.

I actually was very impressed with Keemo when they were losing to either Kings or talawahs, at providence, and the game was already lost. Anyway, Paul came in and really chanced his arm, and the strokes were beautiful. I think I posted about it on this site last year as the game was going on

Yes I remember that. At one point the commies used to say that he was a batsman who could bowl not a bowler who can bat

He does seem to be more focussed this CPL and I wonder if it is as a result of his couple recent stints with the WI team. He is still a much better bowler with the red ball than he is with the white ball so I would hesitate about picking him as an allrounder expected to bowl his full quota of overs in white ball cricket.
