Early signs

Dowrich had his debut in first-class cricket when he was only 18 years old. The 29-year old wicket-keeper batsman had impressed so much that he was firstly awarded with Lord Gavon award for the most promising cricketer along with Roston Chase and then received his maiden Test call in 2015, substituting Shivnarine Chanderpaul who was consistently struggling to score that time. Before his debut in the Test, Dowrich had an excellent form scoring 615 runs from 10 matches at an average of 51.25 in the domestic season. In a bid to gain more maturity in his batting and performance behind the stumps Dowrich traveled to England, representing Sefton Park in Liverpool and District Cricket competition almost throughout 2012. There he recorded an inspiring 733 in the League at an average of 52.35 even though he had to return to the country to play for the West Indies 'A' side in the middle of the season in England. Already two years before Dowrich had represented West Indies in the under-19 World Cup, held in New Zealand in 2010. The World Cup-call was a reward for Dowrich who producing excellent form finished the TCL West Indies Challenge tournament at an average of 41 with the bat before the World Cup. Dowrich has participated I 111 first-class matches so far and scored 4764 runs including seven hundred and 28 fifties at an average of 33.31 while his highest score in first-class cricket has been unbeaten 131 so far.

ODI Career

Shane Dowrich has so far participated in the only One-Day International (ODI) against Bangladesh in 2019. The match was held in Dublin. Dowrich had scored only six runs.

Test career

In his maiden Test appearance against Australia in the first Test at Roseau, the West Indies wicket-keeper batsman had an impressive show in the second innings. Trailing by 170 runs' lead in the second innings West Indies had lost early 3 wickets only for 37 runs. Dowrich, after failing to draw attention in the first innings with a mere 15 only runs on the board, produced gallant 70-run innings, making 144-run partnership in the fourth-wicket stand before West Indies bowed down to 216 runs and offered Australia a nine-wicket victory. Dowrich was on the crease for 250 minutes, playing 185 balls, unleashed only five flawless, copy-book fours and a huge six at an average of 37.84. Dowrich has so far taken part in 35 Tests and struck 1570 runs including three centuries and nine fifties while his highest score in the Test is unbeaten 125. As an appreciation for his courageous performance against Australia Cricket West Indies offered him a red-ball contract for the 2018-19 season and even Dowrich was included in the 10 reserve players' list for the 2019 World Cup.
