he has talent to be a solid alrounder

bowled really fast and well in the last game

I’ve long since thought he is a big underachiever up to this point in his career

As a matter of interest what was he clocking in the last match… he’s normally 130-132 ish ?

i don't remember who it was that he was beating for pace but he was high 130s, he might have even hit 140...i was surprised

The bajan admin are responsible for why he has not progressed since under 19 cricket i think he is batsman who can give you some useful overs not the way barbados has used him as a specialist bowler or a opening bowler

then he should be looking elsewhere for game time and fit

I hope he really knuckles down … I think he has a lot of talent but has come across as having a slightly too casual attitude to me… even a bit lazy.

the chest roll is back out

He’s young so I hesitate to say forget about Sharmar Springer

But……forget about Sharmar Springer

Instead….focus on a young bowler like Ramon Simmons

WTH going on with this player? He should be playing and playing regularly at that.

Only explanation would be if he’s injured or something.

Matthew Forde is another youngster they should invest in.
