Former Jamaica captain Nehemiah Perry believes the development of talented fast bowler O’Shane Thompson would have been aided greatly by featuring in more red-ball matches.

The player’s conditioning has also been a source of concern with the bowler looking several pounds overweight and not approaching speeds seen earlier on.  Perry believes, however, that a part of the problem was the player’s introduction in the shortest format.

“When I saw O’Shane and he was bowling real quick, yes there were some inconsistencies in his delivery but when he gets right he can be very lethal,” Perry told the Mason and Guest radio show.

Compare that to the interview Josh gave after his ton against the Brits
He said he needs to conquer test cricket first as that is the real deal and in time look at the other formats.
Think Oshane is only a year older so plenty of time for him if he wants it

These guys have been around the game a long time but they always neglect making one argument. That is about pesonal accountability and responsibility. Oshane Thomas is a grown man who got into elite sport early but didnt have the discipline to look after his weight in order to stay there....its not the 20/20 cricket ....its all on him.
