K.A.J. Roach

5-72

vs EnglandBack to boards

Kemar Roach claimed his name on to the iconic Honours Boards after a superb display with the ball versus England at Lord’s in the summer of 2017.

After West Indies had been bowled out for 123, they needed an immediate response from their pace attack and Roach certainly delivered.

Taking the early wickets of Alastair Cook and Mark Stoneman, Roach, who was recalled for the series after 18 months out of the West Indies side, went on to dismiss Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali to finish with figures of 5/72 which helped bowl England out for 194.

With the performance, he became the ninth West Indies bowler to make the Honours Boards at the Home of Cricket, joining the likes of legends Courtney Walsh, Malcolm Marshall and Andy Roberts.

Despite Roach’s achievements with the ball, West Indies would go on to lose the Test by nine wickets.
