Left hand Bat
Slow Left arm Orthodox
A left-handed batsman, Vishaul Singh made his first-class debut against Barbados as a 20-year old during Guyana's last match in the 2008-09 season. He scored 4 and 34, and could add just two more first-class appearances the following season. He returned to the Guyana squad as a middle-order batsman in the 2010-11, and scored just one half-century in a drawn game against Barbados. Another dry year resulted in an axe from the first-class squad until February 2014.
Upon return, he made 479 runs in 2014-15 and followed-it up by becoming the third-highest scorer with 712 runs at 50.85 in the subsequent season. The performance resulted in Guyana successfully defending their first-class crown.
Vishaul's 2016-17 first-class season wasn't as exemplary as the two seasons that preceded it, but a call-up came his way against the touring Sri Lanka A team in October 2016, where he struck 161. He was announced vice-captain of the West Indies President's XI side that played Pakistan in April 2017. An unbeaten 135 in the three-day fixture earned him a maiden Test call-up for the first Test against Pakistan at Kingston.
