Profile

In a land where fast bowling talent has been dwindling alarming over the last decade, Kemar Roach is perhaps the brightest hope. At well under six feet, he doesn't have the height of some of the earlier West Indian greats, but he has extreme pace, consistently touching the late 140s (kph), and can skid on to batsmen quicker than they realise.
