Profile

A useful fast-medium right-arm seamer and middle-order batsman, Justin Kemp was predicted by many to have a guaranteed international career ahead of him. He made his debut in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka in 2000-01, taking 5 for 54 in the match and winning selection for the subsequent tour of the Caribbean. A fortnight later, on his way to 188 in a domestic match, he smacked five sixes off one over, and the final ball fell two yards short of the man on the deep square-leg boundary. But in the West Indies he disappointed on the field and got in hot water when he admitted smoking marijuana.
