Kemar Roach joined elite company yesterday.
On a day that Alexandra School once again dominated the headlines, former student Roach kept the institution in the limelight with positive news.
The 23-year-old Barbadian fast bowler became the 16th West Indian to bag ten wickets in a Test match.
On another rain-affected day that condemned the second Digicel Test against Australia to a draw at the Queen’s Park Oval, Roach grabbed a further three wickets to complete his second five-wicket haul in the match.
His final game figures of ten for 156 earned him the Man Of The Match award.
It was the first time that a West Indian took ten or more wickets in a Test match since Roach’s fellow Alexandra alumnus Corey Collymore collected 11 scalps against Pakistan in 2005 at Sabina Park.
