From Berbice county, a hotbed of cricket in Guyana, Devendra Bishoo rose through the ranks to made his first-class debut in 2008 and courted immediate success. His attacking legspin snared four five-wicket hauls in his first two seasons and made him a threat across formats as established by his Man-of-the-Series performance in the 2010 Caribbean T20. He finished with ten wickets in four games at an average of 8.20.
He was also ICC's Emerging Cricketer of the Year in 2011, an honour he dedicated to the memory of his late father, Mohanlal. "After he died, I made a promise to always give of my best and reach for the top," Bishoo said at the presentation. The same year, he had been called up to the West Indies World Cup and had earned a Test debut.
A heavy workload on spin-friendly pitches, both at home and overseas, took its toll on his body and he did not play international cricket for three years from April 2012. A glut of wickets in the domestic circuit for Guyana meant the selectors couldn't ignore him any longer. He was recalled to West Indies' Test squad in 2015.
In an incredible quirk of fate, on June 3, 2015 - exactly 22 years since Shane Warner's ball of the century - Bishoo pitched one outside leg stump, made it rip across Brad Haddin's outside edge and toppled the off stump. He could only play two Tests after that and lost his spot to Jomel Warrican during West Indies' tour to Australia in late 2015.
