Playing Role

Top order Batter

Brandon King got his start as a solid middle-order batter for Jamaica before a promotion to the top order in the CPL unlocked his power-hitting potential, and culminated in a call-up to West Indies' white-ball side.

King made his first-class debut for Jamaica in 2014-15 but had a breakout season in 2018-19, when he racked up 630 runs in seven games, landing him a middle-order slot in the West Indies A side. King also debuted in the CPL in 2017 with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, but flew under the radar until his switch to Guyana Amazon Warriors in 2019, where coach Johan Botha spotted his potential and bumped him up the order. He responded with 496 runs in 12 games, the most by anyone in the tournament that year, at a strike rate of 149, including an unbeaten 132 against Barbados Tridents, then the highest individual score in the CPL.

A step-up to the national squad seemed the natural order of things, but though King produced acceptable, if not earth-shattering performances in limited-overs series against Afghanistan, India, Sri Lanka and New Zealand, he was dropped from the side in late 2020. On his recall a year later, he scored fifties in T20Is against Pakistan and England, and an unbeaten 58 and 91 in an ODI series win against Netherlands.
