Jonathan Foo is among a rare breed of West Indies cricketers with Chinese descent. The young Guyanese allrounder who hails from Berbice, a region which has produced household names such as Alvin Kallicharran and Rohan Kanhai, was one of the stars to emerge from the inaugural Caribbean T20. He helped Guyana snatch victory in the nail-biting final against Barbados, hitting a 17-ball 42 under immense pressure. Foo hadn't appeared for Guyana at the highest level in any form before the tournament, thereby making him an unknown, and surprising, commodity to the opponents. A hard-hitting lower-order batsman and legspinner, Foo will be one of the stars to look out for in the 2010 Champions League.
