Early signs

Kyle Mayers had represented West Indies in the under-19 World Cup in 2012.

Mayers had debuted in first-class cricket in 2015 for the Windward Islands. But he was a failure in his maiden appearance. Playing against Guyana, Mayers was out for a duck and with the ball, he captured only one wicket giving away 44 runs in 12 overs. The all-rounder looked settled in the first-class game gradually.
