Rahkeem Cornwall overview

Rahkeem Cornwall was born on 1st October 1993 in Liberta, the third-largest town in Antigua. He is an all-rounder with right-arm off-break bowling and right-hand batting. Cornwall's maternal uncle Wilden Cornwall was also a professional cricketer as he had played in 53 first-class matches.

Naturally, cricket had come into Rakheem Cornwall's mind instinctively. He has represented the Leeward Islands, West Indies junior and senior side, Antigua Hawksbills, St. Lucia Stars, and St. Lucia Zouks in the Caribbean Premier League. Interestingly the 27-year old Rakheem Cornwall who is six-and-half-fit tall has already set a record as the heaviest player in Test cricket.

His weight is more than 140 kg! Cornwall's gigantic approach on the crease, especially high-action off-break bowling and the delivery from at last two meters away has always been an additional attraction to the cricket-loving people. Cornwall was awarded 'domestic cricketer of the year' in 2019.
