Jermaine Blackwood overview

Jermain Blackwood is a cricketer from Jamaica. The 29-year-old cricketer is a middle-order batsman. Jermaine Blackwood has represented West Indies in 30 Test matches so far. His debut was against New Zealand in 2014. But he has participated only in two One-day international matches, beginning against Sri Lanka in 2015. Jermaine Blackwood has scored 1524 runs in the Test so far with a maiden century against England in 2015.

Jermaine Blackwood is also natural with his bat on the crease. He can be easily called an eligible successor of the previous great stroke players of Jamaica like Chris Gayle. He was once called the future of the West Indies T20 team for his natural stroke play. But later on, he transformed himself to more patient on the crease as he now tries to stick to the crease as long as possible while batting.

Early signs

Jermain Blackwood made his first-class debut for Jamaica in 2012 against Guyana in a regional four-day competition. But he failed in both the innings scoring 17 and 7, respectively. He came into the limelight for the time in the under-19 World Cup for his country. Then in the next season in 2013-14, Blackwood shined with the bat, scoring 611 runs for Jamaica in the same regional four-day competition. Blackwood then did not have to look back. Following an impressive hundred against touring Bangladesh 'A' team, Jermaine Blackwood got the desired national call against New Zealand in 2014, replacing Marlon Samuels. Blackwood has taken part in 106 first-class matches and scored 6260 matches where his highest score was 248 excluding six centuries.

ODI Career

Jermaine made his debut in One-Day International (ODI) in 2015 against Sri Lanka at Colombo. Jermaine failed to impress as he scored only nine runs playing 15 deliveries. The match was won by Sri Lanka by eight wickets. Blackwood has participated in only two ODIs so far where he has only 11 runs in his kitty.

Test career

Jermaine Blackwood had his debut in Test against New Zealand in 2014 and he struck an impressive 63. Then with a maiden Test hundred against England in 2015, scored with natural stroke play Blackwood was adorned by the cricket fraternity. Then Jermaine Blackwood had to go through a lean period and he was able to score only 15 runs in consecutive five innings and was ruled out of the national team for almost two-and-half-years. Still, the batsman did not give up. He returned to Test cricket after producing tremendous form in domestic cricket (768 runs in only eight matches including a magnificent 248 against the Leeward Islands) and regained his place in the national team against England in July this year. He struck a memorable 95 in the second innings of the first Test against England at Southampton, guiding West Indies to a four-wicket victory. Commenting on his inspiring comeback in the Test cricket Blackwood revealed that he had rigorously trained with his mentor, the fellow West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell when he was ruled out of the national team. Even he disclosed that he had spent hours reading books and fishing to increase concentration. Blackwood has participated in 32 Tests so far and scored 1700 runs at an average of 32.07. He has scored two centuries so far and 12 fifties.
