Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph is a promising talent in the West Indian squad, who relies on his brute pace.
In a recent interview, the 23-year-old said he aims to complement his compatriots Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach in the upcoming Test series against England, despite being the least experienced bowler.
Let us analyze how Joseph could prove pivotal for the West Indian bowling line-up.
Having represented Leeward Island in 34 First-class games, Joseph has taken 112 wickets and averaged 24.33. Despite playing fewer matches in the 2019-20 edition of West Indies Championship, he snapped up 11 wickets at 25.00, including best match figures of 7/52.
Alzarri Joseph recorded the fastest ball in the 2016 Under-19 World Cup. He notched up a speed of over 143 KPH in a game against Zimbabwe. Having picked up 13 wickets at 13.76, he was among the top five bowlers in the tournament.
