This journey went on and on with the other series of matches that was played by him and that included, Vancouver Knights, Global T20 Canada Tournament and more.

ODI Career

He started his ODI journey against South Africa at St George's Park on Jan 25, 2015. Cottrell was a part of the 2015 West Indies world cup squad as well. He returned to the ODI side on 23 December 2017 against New Zealand after almost a 2-year absence.Since his debut he has played 34 matches in which he has scalped 49 wickets. He has always played with his innovative length of balling as left arm fast balling which leads to a good googly as well as spin ball etc, which naturally confuses the batsman.

Test career

Sheldon Cottrell has played in just 2 test matches since his debut against India at Eden Gardens on Nov 06, 2013. He has 2 wickets from his two outings and has an economy rate of 4.26.

IPL career

T20 Career

He made his T20 debut against England in March 2014. His T20I debut, though, turned out to be much better, wherein he got 2 wickets for 37 runs against England in Barbados in March 2014. Cottrell continued to be in the West Indies T20 squad. Cottrell was persisted to perform in the T20Is that followed the teams he was working with; he was good in patches. The speed and the sling action prompted the selectors to give him another chance as they picked him for the World Cup in Australia.

ICC Trophies

Sheldon says that he has learned few of the hindi words, while he was playing for India. He is famous for his military salute as he was in military force. He quoted saying “I’m a bowler we don’t have favourite batsmen! Ask me who the best dancer is then! We want all the batsmen out!, it shows how much he is keen having a wit in his conversation. He has the ability to swing the ball and pass it effectively while he is keeping his hands and feet on. We are surprised how he writes hindi with a hint of cunning. He wrote“Great fun! Great bowling. Nakal Karna Hi Sabse Badi Chaploosi Hai.., isn’t it amazing to see him like this. Yes it is surely. He still manages to fascinate us with his hold on the work he provides with his play on the pitch that is just on the spot. That was Sheldon Cottrell.
