Kevon Cooper is a medium-pace bowling allrounder from Trinidad & Tobago, in an era when the West Indies produced many of that ilk. Adept at bowling slower balls and cutters, capable of hitting quick runs down the order, and athletic in the field, Cooper possessed the qualities of the quintessential T20 cricketer and it was in this format that he achieved most of his success.

Cooper made his debut at the age of 19, for Trinidad & Tobago in the Stanford Super Series in 2008. He had to wait nearly two years for his next outing for T&T and it was in the following year, in 2011, that he really cemented his place in the side. He was one of T&T's main bowlers in their victorious Caribbean T20 campaign that year. Though his bowling action was reported during the tournament, he underwent remedial work in Perth and had his action cleared in time for him to participate in the Champions League T20 that September.

Over the next few years, Cooper established his credentials as a globe-trotting T20 cricketer, playing in the CPL, the IPL, the SLPL, the BPL and the PSL. In 2015, he was a regular member of Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel's title-winning side. Later that year, as part of Barisal Bulls' run to the BPL final, Cooper emerged as the tournament's highest wicket-taker.

However, doubts over his bowling action continued to dog him - he was served warnings for a suspect action during his stints with Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2014 and Lahore Qalandars in PSL 2016.
