Rahkeem Cornwall celebrates his century in trademark style during the Group “B” match of the WINDIES Super50 Cup between United States and Leeward Islands Hurricanes on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 3Ws Oval, Barbados.

Robust and imposing Antiguan allrounder Rahkeem Cornwall, will almost certainly make his long awaited Test debut on home soil when West Indies kick off their campaign in the new ICC World Test Championship against India later this month.

The interim selection panel of Cricket West Indies – headed by Robert Haynes – have included Cornwall in the 13-member squad for the MyTeam11 Series, which is co-sponsored by Skoda and KEI.

West Indies and India will play two Tests – from August 22 to 26 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Cornwall’s native Antigua, and from August 30 to September 3 at Sabina Park in Jamaica. 

Cornwall has been rewarded for his impressive record for Leeward Islands Hurricanes in the West Indies Championship and the West Indies “A” Team, since making his first-class debut just under five years ago.

On his debut in 2014, Cornwall at the age of 21, batting at No. 8, made 95 off Jamaica at Sabina Park.The 26-year-old has taken 260 wickets at 23.90 apiece in 55 first-class matches and is highly regarded among his peers as one of the most effective spin bowlers in the Caribbean. (CMC)
