Veerasammy Permaul is a left-arm spinner who took up cricket in 2002 and 10 years later made his Test debut for West Indies in Bangladesh,
He made his first-class debut for Guyana in the 2006-07 Carib Beer Series and picked up four wickets against the Windward Islands and also scalped his first five-for against Jamaica in the KFC Cup. His breakthrough season came two years later with a haul of 32 wickets at 23.93 in first-class cricket and in 2011-12 he finished the season with his best return of 37 wickets at 22.05.
That prompted his call up as a second spinner, alongside Sunil Narine, for West Indies tour of Bangladesh and he made his debut in the 1st Test at Dhaka, taking four wickets in West Indies' victory.
