Former West Indies cricketer Travis Dowlin has been added to the selection panel of the West Indies Cricket Board and will begin official duties from January 1. He joins Courtney Browne, Eldine Baptiste and Lockhart Sebastien to complete the panel.
Dowlin hails from Guyana and represented them from 1997 to 2011, including as a captain in the 2009 season. He played 85 first-class matches, scoring 4,013 runs at an average of 30.7. His international career lasted one year, during which he played 6 Tests, 11 ODIs, and two T20Is when West Indies cricket was transitioning following a fallout between the board and players. He scored one ODI century and three Test fifties during his short stint as an international cricketer.
Since his retirement in 2011, Dowlin has been a cricket analyst, most recently as a member of the radio commentary panels for the Caribbean Premier League and the tri-series involving West Indies, Australia and South Africa earlier this year. Dowlin, who holds a Diploma in Communications, is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications at the University of Guyana.
