Kemar Roach Kemar Roach Height: 5 Feet, 8 Inches DOB: 30 June 1988

Roach is the only bowler from last decade in West Indies cricket who has still maintained his position in current team. The Barbados born speedster made his Test debut against Bangladesh in 2009 where he picked up 13 wickets in first two Test and announced his arrival in International cricket. The series that made Roach made a big name was against Australia where Roach troubled Australian batsmen with his quick pace which also led great Ricky Ponting to retire hurt with injured elbow after a 146kph delivery hits him. But an ankle injury suffered during the Centurion Test in December 2014 slowed him down a little bit.
